-----1 year later-----
I sat in the park staring at all the people walking by, I felt tears every time I saw a dad with his little girl. I saw Nick walking up the pathway towards me, he looked so handsome. I've fallen for him over the past year but he didn't know that. But honestly I have to say I wouldn't have made it threw this year if Nick wasn't here. He was there for me 24/7, no matter what, whether I needed a shoulder to cry on or just someone to talk to and that's what I liked about him. I took a deep breath as he got closer and closer.
"Hey Parker" He walked up to me and sat beside me.
"Hey Nick" I smiled. We were sitting close because our shoulders and legs were touching, I loved it when he sat close to me, I felt protected and safe.
"Do you wanna go for a walk?" I asked. He nodded his head and we both stood up and made our way down the path.
"My dad's birthday is tomorrow" I said.
"You gonna be okay?" he asked.
"I don't know, I mean this is the first year we've had a birthday without him" I smiled remembering what me and him did every year on his birthday.
"Every year on his birthday we would wake up and I would make him breakfast, then me and him would come here to the park and sit on the ledge up there" I pointed to the bridge above us, I watched the place we sat until we walked under it. "Then he would take me out to lunch at the little bistro in the city, and then we would go home where mom was waiting for us with a surprise birthday party" I smiled again. I caught Nick staring at me from the corner of my eye smiling, as soon as he noticed he quickly turned his head and rubbed the back of his neck with his hand, I smiled, I loved when he rubbed his neck, it meant he was nervous and I think it meant he likes a girl cause he did that alot when he met this one girl last year at the state fair, he told me he really liked her and whenever he was around her he always rubbed the back of his neck.
"Sounds like a great day" he said.
"It was" I looked back down at the ground and smiled.
"Do you wanna maybe spend the day tomorrow?" I asked. I kept saying yes over and over again in my head.
"Sure" he smiled.
After the park we walked back to my house and I waited with Nick until his mom came and picked him up. I walked in the house and shut the door behind me. I saw boxes sitting all around the house, I walked around the house looking for my mom.
"Where's my mom?" Mike pointed to the kitchen. Mike was my mom's boyfriend she started dating him 4 months after dad died, I couldn't believe her, I thought it was way too early, me and Mike do not see eye to eye, were always at each others throats, I just hope she doesn't marry him. I walked into the kitchen where my mom was packing away kitchen stuff.
"What are you doing?" I asked. She stepped of the step ladder leading to the top cupboards in the kitchen.
"Honey, me and Mike have some news" As soon as she spoke his name he came in and stood beside her with his arm around her. I instantly knew where this was going.
"Me and Mike are getting married" I was screaming on the inside believe me.
"And?" I said. I knew there was more.
"Well he got a job offer" she said. I swallowed hard, I knew what was coming next.
"Where?" I asked.
"Seattle, Washington" she said.
