I sprinted away as the clouds darkened. Across the bridge and into the middle of a road. I'll never be sad if I don't see it. Kye can't be ripped out of my life. He's the only thing I've really got. And by then, I'm sure it was all just a mean prank he pulled on me. There's no way that he can have cancer. It's dark in the forest and I never want to stop. Just keep going and going. I stop in my tracks and think of how selfish I must be to Kye. Running away because I'm scared and angry and confused. Kye needs me. I take the shortest way back to the yard,crossing through roads and down by the creek. He isn't depressed or angry, he's just sitting there on the hood of a '85 Cadillac staring at the hood between his legs.
"I hate you!" I yell at him.
" Why?" he asks, confused.
" You told me you had cancer just to get me back!" I said, with a glare in my eyes.
Kye stays silent and looks to the sunset over the fence.
"That wasn't a nice prank you know," I nudge him and he scoots away.
" It wasn't a prank," he says, monotone.
I'm still as a brick when he turns to face me.I see the worry in his eyes and just stare at him... That was the last sunset he would see with out a window in front of it.
Two months after that day, Kye passed away and left me to fight the world by myself. He used to be strong and muscular, but two months later, he was weak and limp. He knew he wasn't going to see another day and left me by saying that, 'you're nothing but infinite.'
To this day, I wake up and think about what he said to me before he slipped far away. It's what keeps me going. Everything I do now is for Kye and I know he isn't that far away. I quit school for a while to cope with everything that has happened in the last year. My uncle and mother died in a horrible fire and my dad was shot and killed on the job. Me and Kye were the only ones left to occupy the spacious house in Bend.
I'm infinite and keep fighting until the day I meet everything that has kept me going.
