March 7th

It scares me more with each day that comes, walking down the streets with people coughing all around me. It just keeps getting worse and doesn’t stop. I don’t think life could ever return to the way it used to be. As I walk down the street, raindrops start to fall on the ground and with each fall a load of dust lifts up making people cough even harder. I pick up my pace but so does the rain and soon I find it hard to see the way home. As I run down the street I can hear all around me that unforgettable sound. That’s what kills people now, not cancer like back in the day. It’s a good thing I know my way around even with my eyes shut, which is practically how I am now. I might as well be blindfolded. I keep on running I don’t want to stop, because I can't stand the idea of being as I'll as them. Finally there's my house and as I walk in I can breathe again. Ah, the sweet taste of fresh air. You can't get that anywhere else; this is the best thing around. The inside of my house is infested with plants and all sorts of different flowers, that’s why I'm still living at 40. Most of other people don’t get this far in their life and that is why I am so thankful for these plants, they give me life. My whole house is like a rainforest, not many people get to find out this. I live alone and everyone I know has died a long time ago.

You know after a while these plants really do get annoying. All the looking-after they need and they take up a lot of space, when you walk around my house you constantly get them hitting you in the face, and when you’re not in the best of moods it doesn’t really help. Today isn’t the best of days to get hit in the face.  I think when the medicine is going to be finally finished it won’t have a very great colour on it, probably would even put people off it, but it not meant to look good or taste for that matter, so they’re just going to have to deal with it. I wonder if I mix some random things together it might actually work better than when I think about it, of course they’re going to have to be the right things and not explode when are mixed, they say that the best things happen by accident. Maybe I should you know make an accident, might make me a formula, could be dangerous though. Although you have to take a risk with whatever you do, so it could end up in a good way, right?

Someone’s at the door, I hope its Laney. Is that sad or desperate? Or is it both? It’s neither, I've decided.

“ Hiya, I've brought some food. I hope you haven’t eaten yet,” she says excitedly, almost like nothing happened and this is nothing unusual, because we do this everyday.

“Erm… no actually I haven’t, come on in.” I say a bit startled and confused by all this excitement of hers.

“ Good, good.

“Sir, I have good news”, she says. I just look up without saying anything.

“ Your girlfriend, sir, is awake and is going to make it.”

I quickly jump off the table and run across the hall to her room, to make sure this is not just some crazy dream I'm having, and true that she is sitting up on her bed looking at me and smiling.
