Thomas carried Yuri along the beach
with her face pressed against his. Their foreheads
“Why didn't you tell me?” Thomas asked
as he watched her black hair blow around her.
“I’m sorry, Thomas.” Yuri whispered.
Her voice was soft and tired. She felt tears slide
silently down her cheeks.
“I don’t want to die, Thomas.”
Thomas lay Yuri down carefully and sat down next to
her on a large rock. Her skirt fluttered around her
feet and the sun blinded her slightly on the windy
“I don’t you to die either, Yuri.”
Thomas said as he wiped her tears away.
“Thomas, I know I won’t be able to live
any much longer.” Yuri said quietly.
“Let our hearts connect forever. No matter what
happens, I’ll always be there for you. No matter
what happens, our hearts will always be together,
Thomas looked at her fondly, his platinum blonde hair
whipping out behind him. He nodded and placed his
hands behind him on the cold rock.
“Look at the ocean, it is very violent today.”
“Yes, I love the ocean. It’s calm sometimes,
but violent and unsure at other times, just like our
She turned to Thomas.
“Thomas, my heart will never leave you.”
She closed her eyes, and so did he. They both leaned
forward in unison and kissed very gently. Thomas placed
his hand on Yuri’s cold face and ran his fingers
through her soft black hair like a comb. They kissed
in front of the roaring ocean under the pale sunset.
“Thomas, can you sing me a lullaby?” Yuri said quietly.
They were back at school in Thomas’s dormitory. Yuri was
lying in Thomas’s arms because she didn’t want to
go back to the hospital. Thomas has been with her for every second
since he got back to London. Aaron Spiel had called Mrs. Kowan.
Even though Yuri objected to it, Mr. Spiel insisted that her mother
be with her.
“I don’t know any lullabies, Yuri, but I have a poem.
It’s called ‘Together’. This is how it goes.”

“I’ll hold your hand and help you stand
when you need me.
I’ll truly love you and be your eyes
when you are blind.
I’ll help you find your way and be your compass
when you are lost.
I’ll keep you warm and be your blanket
when you are cold.
But I believe when we’re together,
we can accomplish whatever we want.
We will hold hands, side-by-side,
with nothing to worry and nothing to hide.
We can be together.
Just you and me together forever.”
“That is a beautiful poem, Thomas.” Yuri
murmured sleepily as her eyelids felt heavy.
She put her head onto his shoulder and murmured.
“Can you do all that for me?”
Thomas kissed her on the cheek.
“Of course I can. I would do anything for you.
Remember, our hearts are connected.” He hugged
Yuri’s voice trailed off and she fell into a
“Yuri!” Mrs. Kowan burst through the
door and ran up to her daughter with a duffel bag
clinging limply out of her hand.
She studied her daughter. Yuri looked so pale, so
weak and fragile. She stroked her daughter’s
face and hugged her tightly.
“Hi, Mother.” Yuri said.
Mrs. Kowan began to sob.
“Mother, what’s wrong?”
“Oh, my dear, what happened?” Mrs. Kowan
Yuri felt pain shoot through her body and her body
“It’s alright, Mother.” Yuri managed
to choke out.
Her muscles were weakening again.
“Yuri, look at you. You’ve grown so much
skinnier!” her mother put her arms around Yuri
and turned to Thomas.
“Thomas, dear. Thank you for taking care of
my little girl.” She said, tears in her eyes.
“Yuri, you should go back to the hospital. You
will go through the operation.” Mrs. Kowan insisted.
Thomas and Mrs. Kowan escorted her to the hospital
where they filled in papers for the operation.
“Mrs. Kowan, please go and rest for a while. I’ll
take care of Yuri.” Thomas offered.
The lady smiled wanly.
“Alright, I’ll go wait outside while you two chat.”
She said, patting his shoulder.
Thomas sat down next to Yuri and she grabbed his hand.
“Thomas, I’m scared. I don't want to have surgery.”
She said and her eyes looked frightened.
Thomas took her in his arms and gave her a kiss on the cheek.
“I’ll be right next to you, Yuri. Don’t worry.”
He said gently.
“I’m afraid of dying.” Yuri confessed.
“Everyone thinks I’m so noble and brave but nobody
understands how scared I am inside. I don’t want to die.”
She began to tremble slightly.
Thomas hugged her tighter.
“Everything will be OK.” He soothed.
He hugged her for a long time, until she spoke.
“Thomas, go get some rest.” She said.

Thomas smiled and nodded. Yuri noticed dark shadows
under his blue eyes and he did not harden his platinum
blonde hair with gel today. Yuri watched him leave
and her heart began to hammer with fear. She was so
scared, she was so afraid of death. She sat up and
put her head against her knees as she cried in the
dark. She felt so lonely, so lost…
The door to the ward opened and Emily stepped in.
She was crying as well.
“You called Thomas, Emily. Thank you.”
Yuri said through her sobs.
Emily nodded and hugged Yuri hesitantly.
“I’m so sorry!” she whispered.
Yuri hugged her back.
“Emily, I’m so scared. I don't want to
have the operation. I don't want to!”
Emily held Yuri’s head gently.
“Yuri, be brave. Not for me. Not for Thomas,
but for yourself.” She encouraged.
Both girls wept to drown their sorrows. Neither knew
how long they wept but it made them both feel better.
“Thomas, Mrs. Kowan, Emily, Yuri’s conditions has
worsened.” Dr. Brown said.
“There is no hope. She can’t have the operation anymore.
We have arranged for your last visits.” He walked away to
Mrs. Kowan fell back onto the bench with tears flooding down her
cheeks. Emily gasped and Thomas shook his head before turning
on his heels and racing out of the hospital. He ran with all his
might until he stumbled and couldn’t run anymore. He put
his hands on the fountain in front of him and stared at his reflection.
They were so close to extending Yuri’s life span. Now, she
is going to die. He could not keep his promise and be with her
