He look up and saw their wedding photo set on the wall. He stand up and look closer on it. He remember how much great day it was. they both was so happy in that time, ready to start they life together.
He saw Allen smile and start to hear her laughing in side his mind. He always try his best to keep her happy no matter what. He remember the days when the cancer get more stronger and Ellen lose the ability to stand up and walk. All the days she was stay in the bed. Joe saw how her smile was disappear and did everything to bring it back.
One day he get enough of it. he pick her up on his hand and take her to trip in the city. It was not really a trip but it did help Ellen to forget all the pain and bring her smile back. He was ready to do everything to bring her smile back. But now… Now it is over. This caner take the most important thing in my world.
He get angry. he take the chair that was in the room and throw it on the wall. wedding photo was fold on the floor and the glass get broke. He fold on the knees and start cry. Noting was can stop him from crying. “Ellen why you leave me alone Ellen…” He fold on the floor and cuddle himself.
