To Love Then Lose
Then Love Again
"Matt please just think about it." Johnny said sadly
trying to get Matt to see that Brian was never coming back.
"Johnny I'm not going to cheat on Brian by dating you." Matt argued back not wanting to talk about
Johnny sadly looked to the floor."But I love you Matt."
Matt sighed and looked away from Johnny to the front door that still stood open."I can't love you
Johnny. I don't want to hurt Brian."
Johnny looked up at Matt truly afraid for his friend."Brian is dead, he won't care." he said.
Matt glared at Johnny and moved to his front door."Get out Johnny."
Johnny sighed and moved out the door, looking back to Matt he sadly said."Brian would have wanted
you to move on." he then turned and walked down the steps to his car leaving.
Matt just scoffed and shut the door. Going back to the sofa he sat and looked to the the picture of
him and Brian on the wall above the tv. Sighing he stood back up and went to bed, he didn't care if
it was only six o'clock in the afternoon.
Later on the same night, Matt awoke to the feeling something or someone in his room.
Chuckling."Finally, I thought I'd never get your attention."
Stunned Matt looked to his left and saw Brian standing near him a white glowing light behind him.
"Brian?" was all that came out.
More chuckling."Yes and no. This is only a dream Matthew. It was the only way death would let me
talk to you."
Confused Matt looked at Brian with a a raised brow."Death is letting you talk to me."
Brian smiled."Yes he is. but I'm not here to talk about Death, Matt. I'm here for another
Matt sat up and moved closer to Brian who just smiled."I miss you baby." he said tears in his
Brian smiled."I know Matt. I've been watching you since my death. But Matthew its been over a year.
You need to move on. Give your love to Johnny, I know he loves you. Even when I was alive I knew,
but out of respect for me him never made his move. Now that I am going you'll need someone in your
life Matt. Go to Johnny. He has so much love for you. I know you can see it."
Matt sighed and shook his head."But I would be cheating on you." he said moving closer to Brian.
The older male just grinned."Matt, I'm dead, you can't cheat on the dead. Though Death can be
cheated, and he hates it when people cheat him, but that is another story." he chuckled as he closed
his eyes and leaned back some then stood up straight.
Matt sighed."But Brian I only want you." he pleaded as he stood to be near his lost love.
Brian frowned."Matt I know you miss me, but I've never really left you. You'll always have memories
of me. You have pictures and home movies of us doing things together. Just because I'm not
physically there doesn't mean I'm not."
Matt pouted as tears fell."But I want to feel you in my arms again Bri." he said reaching out to
touch his love.
Brian smiled and moved closer and palced a kiss on Matt's cheek, then he backed away. Matt's hand
now in his."For me Matt please move on for me." he called as he moved his hand from Matt's backing
into the glowing white light.
Matt whined and reached out."Don't leave me yet."
Brian just smiled and chuckled."I'll see you in the Afterlife." he said as he backed into the light,
and just as quickly as he said good-bye the light was gone and Matt woke up for real.
Looking around his room he wondered if what he saw in his dream was real. Sighing he fell back into
his pillow and then turned to look at the clock. He was surprized that it was only one in the
morning. Sitting up he grabbed his phone and scroll through the numbers till he found Johnny's
Running one hand over his bald head he moved his thumb to hit send and then placed the cell to his
ear. Hearing the dial tone he waited till he heard Johnny's voice.
"Hello?" Johnny called from the other end.
"Hey John." Matt said softly.
"Oh hey Matt" Johnny said back sadly.
"Listen I want to apology for kicking you out of my house earlier today." Matt said as he leaned
back agaisnt the head board.
"Yeah... well I was out of line, about what I said about Brian. I'm sorry." Johnny apologized.
Matt smiled and sighed."Yeah what you said did hurt but Johnny,...I've come to realize that I need
to move on."
Johnny was silent for a moment then asked."What made you change your mind?" he wondered as he waited
for Matt to speak.
Matt smiled."Lets just say I had an epiphany. And I want to treat you to dinner tomorrow night if
you would like to accompany me."
Johnny smiled and let out the breath he was holding."Yes I would love to Matt."
Matt's smile widened."Good and another thing I want to know. Would you consider being
my...boyfriend?" he hoped Brian was right and that Johnny would say yes.
Johnny smiled and said."Yes Matt I'll date you."
Matt closed his eyes and felt the press of a kiss on his cheek. He knew Brian was there and that he
approved of Matt asking Johnny out."Okay that is good...so I'll see you tomorrow at seven?"
Johnny nodded forgeting that Matt couldn't see him."Yeah, Seven."
"Night Johnny." Matt said
"Night Matt." Johnny replied.
