directed to the burn unit of the ICU, where Casey was
being treated. They weren’t allowed in to see him. So
they sat helpless waiting for news. Garson was very
uncomfortable, but was under no circumstances going
to leave Alex’s side, as the doctor came out to speak to
her. It was the same doctor that had been attending
when Garson was taken in. She didn't have good news.
Casey wasn't going to make it. He was horribly burned,
and had broken his back. He had a collapsed lung and
multiple broken bones. He was heavily drugged, and
really only hanging on long enough to see Alex. The
doctor explained that he was conscious, and in a lot of
pain, but amazingly able to speak. She wasn't quite
sure how, but all he kept asking for was Alex. The
doctor warned her of what she would see. She didn't
care. She just wanted to see him and tell him she loved
Alex walked in the room, opening the door a
crack, allowing a sliver of light to shine through the
doorway. Casey didn't look like Casey. Alex retreated
slightly, unable to believe it was her fiancé that was
lying there. His eyes opened almost startling her. He
saw her and attempted a weak smile. “Hey.”
“Hey,” she was crying uncontrollably.
“C’mere” he whispered, she moved closer, slowly,
thoughtfully, not believing what was happening.
“Oh baby, I'm so sorry this is happening to you.”
“Hey, stop crying darlin',” his voice raspy, barely a
whisper. “I know I don’t have a whole lot of time.”
“Casey don't say that,” she was crying harder now,
wracked with sobs, realizing the inevitable.
“Baby, please, hear me now. Don't remember me with
tears. I need you to remember me happy, and alive, not
like this. We’ve shared more love than I ever thought
possible. You’ve shown me more love than I ever
thought I deserved. You said yes, thank you so much
for that. If you love me, please don’t cry when you
remember me. If you remember me with tears, then I
don't want you to remember me at all.”
“Casey I do love you, so very much, more than life
itself. You are the greatest part of my life, and I will
love you always.” She didn't know what to say, what to
do. She only knew that her heart was dying with him.
“Alex, listen to me. Don’t die with me. I couldn't bear
it. Promise me. You have so much love
to offer someone, please don't waste it mourning me.
You have to promise me. I love you baby and I want
you to be happy. Garson is a wonderful person and he
loves you very much.”
“Casey, I could never. I don’t want to hear that.”
“I want you to promise me Alex, promise me here and
“Casey, I can't.”
“You must, please.” Casey began to cough. Alex
moved closer to him, as close as she dared.
“Casey, I promise, I promise.” Alex was hysterical, she
wanted to wrap herself around him and die with him.
Her heart was breaking, she could barely breathe. How
could he expect her to go on without him?
“I love you, Alex. I will always love you, and be
thankful to you for the love you’ve given me.
Remember the first night I told you I loved you? I told
you that life has so few precious things in it? I know
this sucks, believe me I don’t want to leave you, ever
but we have to accept it. All those kids, those babies,
they have their whole lives ahead of them because of
me. That’s precious. I love you, so very much. Now
please, go. I don’t want you to see me like this
anymore. Goodbye, Alex.”
“I love you Casey. I love you baby, I'll see you in my
dreams.” Alex had calmed down considerably. She
wasn't sure why, it was as if Casey's words had brought
her peace. Despite what she was losing, she listened,
and more importantly heard what he said to her. Still, it
would never be okay that he was taken from her so
She didn’t want to leave him, but she also didn't want to
be there when he ultimately left her life forever. She
didn’t think she could handle it, and she wanted to keep
her promise to him. She knew she would still have to
cry, to mourn losing him. But she was determined to
try and grant his last request of her, not to remember
him with tears. She kissed him gently on his forehead,
the only area she dared touch him.
Casey closed his eyes, knowing it would be the last time he’d ever see her beautiful face. He didn’t want her to leave, but he
had another important conversation to take care of. He
got himself together as best he could. Casey knew as
much as his heart was breaking, he wasn't the one being
left behind. He was the one leaving and in a short
while he would no longer feel anything. But Alex and
Garson and his family and friends would have to feel
the loss, and emptiness. He didn’t want to think about
Alex being alone through all of it.
Alex left Casey's room and went to find Garson, who
was sitting uncomfortably in the waiting room. Garson
looked up to see a surprisingly calm Alex walking
towards him. She helped him to his feet.
“He's not going to be with us for much longer, but I
couldn't bear being in their when...” Alex closed her
eyes, picturing Casey well, not the broken person she
just left. “He wants to talk to you.”
“Me?” Garson couldn't imagine why Casey wouldn’t
want to spend every last moment with Alex.
“Can you make it by yourself?” he nodded and Alex sat
down slowly, “I'll be here.”
He made his way to Casey's room. He was ill-prepared
for what he saw when he got there. He opened the door
bleeding light in from the hall. Catching sight of Casey,
he flinched. He braced himself, knowing that his friend
needed him to be strong.
“Hey man,” Casey spoke sounding surprisingly strong.
“Hey,” Garson whispered afraid if he spoke too loudly
it would hurt Casey.
“Can you promise me something?”
“Anything Case, anything at all.”
“I want you to be there to take care of Alex, and I want
you to love her like you always have, and not let this,
me, stand in the way of what you guys will have.”
Casey could feel his breath catch, and he knew he didn't
have much longer. “Promise me buddy.”
“Casey, Alex loves you, I promise to be there to take
care of her and be there for her. But I can't promise
“Garson, hear me now. She loves you. You two belong
together. I’ve always known it. And I know you have,
too. Fate has a funny way of working life out for us.
I’ll be keeping an eye on you two. And if I have to come back and kick both your asses, I will.”
Casey attempted a weak chuckle, but only succeeded in
sending himself into fit of coughs.
“Do you want me to get someone?” Garson hated to see
his friend like that.
“No, just do as I say. I’m trusting you to take care of
Alex and make sure she doesn't die with me, okay?”
“I will Casey, I promise.”
“Now get the hell out of here. I don’t want anyone to
see me when I go. Take Alex, go home, and share
happy stories of me. Laugh, a lot. You can speak to my
lawyer about the rest. His name is in the file on my
desk at home. You'll find it. Later, man.”
“I'll take care of everything,” Garson got up and made
his way out of the room. As he was leaving, he heard
the monitors beep erratically and then fall to a steady
tone. Casey was gone.
Alex, not having heard the machines, felt it in her
heart. She closed her eyes, and she would swear she
felt something pass through her and then away from
her. She didn’t cry. She just sat there remembering that
feeling. Casey was gone forever.
