Just A Dream

Just A Dream

A Story by MadiKay
"

This is basically a one shot, it was the first one I ever created. Based off of the song, 'Just a Dream' by Carrie Underwood. (:

"
It was two weeks after the day she turned eighteen
All dressed in white
Going to the church that night
She had his box of letters in the passenger seat
Sixpence and a shoe, something borrow, something blue

I tried to choke back my sobs but let a small whimper escape my chapped lips. I slipped on my jet black gloves and put my matching high heels on. They 'clicked' and 'clacked' as I walked on the tile floor, pacing back and forth. I glanced over at the love letters he wrote me, all gathered neatly into a small box. I managed a small smile before frowning again. Sitting down on the plush couch, I waited patiently for the doors to open.

And when the church doors opened up wide
She put her veil down, 
trying to hide the tears
Oh she just couldn't believe it
She heard the trumpets from the military band
And the flowers fell out of her hand

I slowly exposed myself from the small room and walked out onto the black carpet, leading me to my seat. I put my black veil down and let a couple of tears slip. I had to fight the urge to cover my ears and try to block out the sound of the high pitched trumpets. Eventually, I couldn't take it and the flowers collided with the floor as I put my hands over my ears. I didn't want this to happen, I didn't want him to leave this Earth right before our wedding. He had so much in front of him...
Baby why'd you leave me?
Why'd you have to go?
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe
It's like I'm looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream


People craned their necks to look at me, they too having tear trails down their cheeks. His mother patted the spot next to her and I sat down immediately. She gave me a sad smile and I looked forward, as did she trying to listen to the preacher. I sighed softly and let a few more tears scamper down my pink cheeks. They stopped on my red lips, leaving a salty residue.
The preacher man said let us bow our heads and pray
Lord please lift his soul, and heal this hurt
Then the congregation stood up and sang the saddest song that she'd ever heard

I bowed my head and folded my hands. My eyelids were closed but I see the memories rush through my mind in my head. Sobs escaped my lips making people turn their heads and give my sad looks. I returned the look and hoped that the Lord would heal me hurt. My heart ached for me to see him again. But, I couldn't. He was gone and never coming back. He shouldn't have died this way. He was kind to everyone and they had to go and shoot him. Why?!

Then they handed her a folded up flag
And she held on to all she had left of him
Oh, and what could have been
And then guns rang one last shot
And they felt like a bullet in her heart


They handed me a folded up flag and I held it close to my heart. It felt as if he was right there, hugging the life out of me. A couple of tears turned into a bunch of sobs. I wiped them away and inferred that i had mascara running down my face. I fell on my knees only to get a bunch of sad looks from all of the people around me. 


Baby why'd you leave me?
Why'd you have to go?
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe
It's like I'm looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream

Oh, baby why'd you leave me?
Why'd you have to go?
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe
It's like I'm looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream
 


I woke up in a cold sweat with my soon to be husband laying next to me. Tears clouded my vision and they were soon falling. I cuddled up next to him and he wiped the tears away. "Please, never let me go." I begged. I just nodded and laid me down next to him, my arms wrapped around his torso.
