The darkness is there, the light is there but she is here. I want to protect her. I can't leave her. My death has ripped her world in two. -Mikel
He's still here, I feel him all around. At night his arms wrap around me and I can breathe again. I know he should go. I know he no longer belongs here, but I'm selfish and I don't want him to leave me. - Irish
I don't want to do this. He can't be gone.
Irish Meadow stood looking at her tear stained face in the bathroom mirror. She was supposed to speak at her fiancé's funeral, but she couldn't accept that he was gone. "Irish, honey." Her mother spoke, tapping softly on the door.
She wiped her eyes and opened it. "I can't do this. Mikel can't be gone." The tears poured down her cheeks again.
"You don't have to speak, honey." Her mother responded gently.
"What would he think?" Irish asked.
Her mother cupped her cheeks. "He'd understand." she reassured.
"Maybe, but it doesn't feel right not saying something." Her mother embraced her briefly and then took her hand, leading her into the service room.
She slowly walked up to the podium clenching a note he had written her before the wreck. He had asked her to hold onto to it till he got home from his trip. She still hadn't opened it. She was afraid to open it without him.
"In this envelope is the last words I'll ever have from Mikel. It was something he wanted us to open together and I still can't. I don't want to accept that he lost his life doing what he loved. Flying planes was what he enjoyed and one took his life." She paused, choking back tears.
"We were supposed to have a life. We were supposed to have a family." She rested her hand on her stomach.
"He wanted to be a father and he would have been amazing. I love him, I'll always love him. My world won't ever be the same." She stopped and raced out of the room. She couldn't be there anymore.
About the Author
I’m thirty years old, but will be twenty-nine in May. I am a Navy Wife and a mother of two. My daughter was born December 4, 2010 and my son was born July 18, 2013. My husband and I have been married for almost seven years, but we have been together since our junior year of high school and we have known each other since 8th grade, yes a long time.
I am a Florida girl at heart, but since getting married I have lived in Washington, South Carolina, and our latest move Connecticut. I hold a B.A. in Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Political Science from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida.
Writing is something I love and since I am blessed to be a stay at home mom I thought I would try my hand at getting the stories in my head out and see how far I could go. I tried a few years ago to go through a Literary Agency, but it went nowhere. The self-publishing market was just starting to get hot so I self-published two books mainly for family and friends. I then discovered the world of New Adult. I wanted to stick with my paranormal roots and began thinking up story ideas that took on not only a paranormal element, but a fantasy element as well
My Motto: Not your average Fairy Tales
So, that is me in a nutshell. I am a little crazy and simple and I love my life and my family.
