I was running down the plain white hallway, past the plain doors of the oncology ward. The ticking of the clock on the wall seemed so loud as it neared 11:27 AM, the time my watch had stopped, the watch Alicia had given me.
I can feel the blood coursing through my body, my heartbeat pounding in my ears. I can't seem to breathe right, but I don't care, I have to reach her room before the clock hits 11:27. There was so much I need to tell her, so much she needed to know about me, about us, and nowhere near enough time.
Someone calls to me, I can hear them, but their words sounded fuzzy and faded, as if a layer of water separates us, the same water I struggle to swim through in a race against time. I feel hands on my body. They are cold, so unlike her. I needed to feel the warmth in her hands, to see her smile. It was the only think I need right now, yet these strangers were preventing me.
Voices, that was all that I heard. I know the words they were speaking had meaning, yet they were meaningless in this time and moment. Nothing matters but room 203, the room I have to reach. There is only four minutes left, and I know that four minutes will never be enough to share everything, to say all the words that I need to say. How could they not hear the ticking of the clock, the one that will seal her doom. I try to show them my watch, to tell them there isn't much time. They refuse to listen to me, so I struggle. I kick and wiggle until i elude their grasp, and can continue down the hall. 316Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTxcKWMqRyf
Her father is there, standing in the hallway outside the room. He says something to the people behind me, the owners of the hands that once more reach toward me, restricting me from my goal.
"It's ok. He needs to see her."
Usually that would make me cringe, but not right now, there is so much i need to tell her, but not enough time. Three minutes will not be enough time, three months wasn't enough time, and maybe God knows that, because all of a sudden, time can to a standstill, and I began to relive it all again.ns 126.96.36.199da2
