Last Goodbye - Chapter 14
Nurses surrounded the bed and I was rushed out of the way. As my hand parted Grayson’s, I whispered through my tears... I love you.
Nurse: Y/n I’m so sorry for your loss. I advice you go home and get some rest and you can make the funeral arrangements tomorrow.
I nodded and left the ward with one last glance over my shoulder at Grayson. I got Uber back to Ethan’s villa and when I went inside I saw Rose in the kitchen. My eyes were bloodshot red and I was extremely shaken.
Rose: Omg y/n are you ok?! Where were you last night.
You: I was at the hospital. It’s Grayson... he’s dead.
Her mouth fell open and her hand covered her mouth. She hugged me tight and I looked around and noticed Ethan asleep on the sofa.
Rose: You need to tell him.
You: I will when he’s awake. I need to get myself together first.
Rose: Can I do anything for you? Do you need breakfast making or anything?!
You: No I’m not hungry but thanks anyway.
I sat on my bed and stared at the ceiling, how the fuck do I explain this. I just wanted Grayson by my side to help me right now. He’d know what to say and do. I hadn’t known him for long but I can say that for all the time I had known him, despite the Ashley situation, I actually felt loved. But I’ll have to bring myself to move on. Grayson’s happy now and that’s all that matters. I heard Ethan’s voice in the other room so he was obviously awake now. I stood up and took a deep breath. I went outside into the lounge and Ethan turned to look at me.
Ethan: Where were you last night?
Rose stood behind Ethan and gave me a reassuring nod.
You: Ethan I really um... I need to talk to you. Can you sit down?
My heart sunk to my stomach and I really felt the pressure when Ethan looked so concerned.
Ethan: What’s wrong?!
You: So I’ve been with Grayson all night. You know how he had cancer and all...
Ethan: Has* ...we’re talking future tense.
You: No Ethan you see... Grayson was really upset and he-
Ethan nodded as he began to tear up.
Ethan: He killed himself, didn’t he.
I closed my eyes and let out a long breath. Ethan walked into another room and shut the door. @graysondolan @ethandolan ❤️ more below
