As soon as Frank was back at school, Gerard found himself falling back into old habits. Some days he would do nothing but stay indoors and sleep, simply because he felt he needed to. If he thought too much, he was sure he would go crazy. Other days when his mind was clearer, he'd sit at his desk with his sketchbook. Having something to show for his day made him feel a lot better. Too often when Frank would come over, he'd tell him all about his day at school, and Gerard would have nothing to tell him in return except that he'd slept through most of it.
One morning when he felt particularly good, however, unusually alert and confident, he'd applied for college. Just one; the closest one, but he didn't expect to hear anything back, and still hadn't. He wasn't sure he even wanted to hear back. He thought that applying was the important part, at least that's what Frank had said.

To know the fate he would soon suffer. I would give anything to take it away from him. If only it was me in his place.

"I love you," I whispered to Gerard again, for the millionth time in just that week as I took hold of his hand.
"I know you do, Frankie."
"Don't you ever forget it."
"How can I? You repeat it to me like clockwork."
"It doesn't mean I don't mean it."
"I know that Frankie. I love you too."
Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark
What's it like there Gerard? Have you found your grandmother yet? Is she there with you? She'll make sure you're happy. I know she hates to see you sad, almost as much as I do. Are you in Heaven?
