Here is part 10 :D cheers for all comments and support guys! I have gone for more story than perfect screenshots I am afraid so judge me on the story mainly please :D Having Josh in my life was a weight off my shoulders. I was happier and healthier than I had ever been and it was all because he was in my life. He moved in and we spent all our time together. We did random things when we both weren't busy with university, like going to the University music area and listening to live music and eating hot dogs. Josh always made me smile, especially since it was so easy to throw food at him. We both agreed to not worry about my illness and how long I had left but to instead value each moment together. We went to the park and held one another for hours, reciting our favourite Shakespeare quotes or poems. It was so romantic. I took Josh to the Coffee Shop.

"Why here?" he smiled.

"It was our first date," I laughed, reminding him, "I'm going to buy YOU a hot chocolate."
"A hot chocolate with everything on it!" I asked, "Josh?"

"Make that two," he smiled at me.
We chatted over our drinks and talked about my parents and their new home. Mum and Dad had finally moved into a beautiful house with my two little sisters. Yes sisters! My Mum gave birth to another girl and called her Autumn (you can guess when we were all born!) she is now almost 3 years old. Summer is approaching 7. Their new house is beautiful. Mum and Dad even have a room for me if I want to take it after university. Both my sisters are beautiful, I am more like my Mum but they are more like my Dad. "Let's go outside," Jake smiled. "Remember what happened here?" I laughed embarassed. Josh's eyes flickered with delight.
"Course I do," Josh said softly, moving closer, his breath on my face, "I never forgot the first time we kissed." He caressed my cheek and his eyes covered my whole face, as though memorising my features. Then we kissed it and I felt like a teenager again. Over the next few weeks Josh and I made sure we had a date at least three times a week and one night he told me to put on my best dress. I had been feeling a bit worse for wear the past few weeks so felt I deserved a happy night. I primped and pampered and was surprised at where we ended up going.

"Where here?" I asked confused, "I am so overdressed!"

"This is where we first met," Josh beamed as he kissed me, "It's a special moment and calls for only the best clothes!"
"Let's sit down," Josh suggested, leading us to the seats where we first met.

"This is the place where I knew I had found the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Moment I saw you with your Shakespeare book, I knew you were the one!" Josh laughed. "I just thought you were annoying!" I laughed in reply, "But now I know you're the one." We sat down at the table and Josh stared at me intensely. "Are you ok?" I asked confused yet again, "You look worried."

"I am worried," Josh admitted.

"Why?" I replied.

"I asked your Dad something, and he said yes, but I haven't asked you yet..." Josh admitted.

"What did you ask him?" I answered, still confused.
Josh reached into his pocked and placed a box on the table.

"I asked his permission for your hand," Josh said nervously, "But now I need yours." My mouth was open in shock as I realised what was in the box.
I opened the box to see the most exquisite diamond ring inside it. It glistened in the light. I let out a small squeal of excitement. "Omygosh, it's beautiful," I stuttered as my eyes welled up with happiness.

"Marry me April?" Josh pleaded softly, "Make me the happiest man alive. Let's enjoy whatever time we have together as a married couple, please?"
"Are you sure?" I asked, "I mean, I don't need to be married to..."

"I know," Josh said cutting me off, "But I WANT to marry you."
I choked back the tears because I never thought I would live to see this moment.

I picked up the ring and admired it, Josh watched me, waiting for my response. Tears were forming and I just nodded at him. "Is that a yes?" Josh said excited.

"YES!" I squealed even more excited. I slid the ring on my finger, a perfect fit and smiled at Josh. He was tearful too.

"I love you!" I told him happily.

"Love you too," he smiled back.
We both admired my ring together.

"I like that there," he smiled at the ring on my finger, "Means you're definitely mine."

"I know," I nodded touching his hand.

"Let's get married soon as we can," Josh told me, "This cannot wait!" He looked sad for a moment but then smiled.
Josh left for university the next morning and I woke up to see roses on our front door.

"To my beautiful fiancee, I am counting down the days till I make you officially mine. I love you and will love you forever. Josh x"

I smiled happily. I was getting married! I called my Mum that day and asked her to come over. We had a wedding to plan and we didn't know how long I had left. Would I make it down the aisle in time...?

End of part 10 :D

Great update.  Is she getting treatment for the leukemia?  Her hair should be falling out and maybe even schedule a surgery with one of her family members to try a bone marrow transplant.  I am hoping she makes it to the wedding and they have a long and happy life.

#9Bubbles1034Sep 9, 2009

Sad, because my best friend actually died of leukimia...she lived a long time considering she didn't respond to the treatment...my friend only lived a year and a half. So sad. But please, don't let her die, or I'll think of my friend and I'll just cry
