* 2 years later *
"MOMMY MOMMY!!!" Sabina smiled, as she walked into Justin Randall Jr's room.
"What is it sweetheart?" She asked, as she stood by the doorway.
2 year old Justin Jr. smiled, as he walked over to the radio. "Look mommy, look what I can do." He said, as the music started playing. Sabina's eyes instantly brimmed with tears, as the music started playing through the speakers of the television.
Bye bye bye
I'm doing this tonight
You're probably gonna start a fight
I know this can't be right
Hey baby come on
I loved you endlessly
When you're weren't there for me
So now it's time to leave and make it alone
I know that I can't take no more
It ain't no lie
I wanna see you out that door
Baby bye bye bye
NSync's "Bye Bye Bye" video played loudly on the television. Sabina smiled as she looked at her son. Only being 2 years old, he could dance like no one else his age. Every dance step was right at beat. He looked exactly like Justin did when he was alive.
"What did you think mommy?" Junior asked, as he ran up to his mother.
Sabina smiled. "It was wonderful sweetheart." She said, as she softly started crying.
"Mommy?" Junior asked. "Why you crying?"
Sabina gasped lightly. "Oh it's nothing baby..." She sniffed softly. "You just remind me so much of your father."
"It's ok mommy." Justin Jr. said, as he wrapped his small arms around her neck. "I still love you." He said, his blue eyes brimming with tears.
Sabina smiled, as she looked at him. "I love you too sweetheart." He did remind her of Justin. Everyday that passes by, he keeps looking more and more like his father. Though sadly, his father isn't here to watch him grow up. "C'mon, let's go to the backyard." She said, as they both ran our of the room.
"Uncle JC!!!" Junior yelled, as he ran up to JC.
"Hey! Little man!" JC laughed, as he lifted him up in his arms. "How ya doing?" He asked, as he put him down.
"Otay.. Guess wha? I can dance to bye bye bye." He said happily.
JC smiled. "Really?"
"Yup, he sure can." JC turned his head, as he saw Sabina walking outside. "Hi JC."
JC smiled. "Hi B." He said, as he wrapped her in a warm embrace.
Sabina smiled, as she slowly pulled away. "How you been?"
"Okay... How've you been?"
Sabina sighed softly, as she watched Justin Jr. play on the swings with Chris, Joey, and Lance. "I'm hanging in there." She said softly. Her eyes quickly brimmed with tears. "Sometimes I wonder... How I've been able to get through, after all that's happened."
JC sighed, as he wrapped his arms around her. "You're a strong women B... You truly are... You're doing all this for yourself and... For your son."
"I know." She said, as she laid her head against his chest. "Ya know... Sometimes I even wonder.... Will I ever fall in love again?"
JC sighed deeply. "I don't know sweetie... Your love for Justin was very strong. It still is. As well as his love for you. Maybe you'll fall in love again, or maybe you won't... Only time will tell."
She nodded her head slowly. "I miss him." She said softly. Her eyes brimming with tears. "I miss him so much." She cried softly.
JC's eyes brimmed with tears as he hugged her tighter. "Shh... You'll be ok... Don't worry." He said softly, trying to comfort her.
"Ya know... There's just one thing I still can't accept. And I probably never will."
She sighed, as she looked up at the light blue sky. She closed her eyes, an image of Justin popping into her mind. His eyes, so bright and blue. His smile, so pure, so happy. A beautiful angel up in heaven. The wind blew softly against her cheeks. A kiss from Justin. The sound of the wind whispering in her ears, "I love you." Those three beautiful words coming from Justin. She slowly opened her eyes, Justin's image fresh in her mind. He was everything to her. Her pride and joy. Her love and her life. Her husband and her friend. But he was gone. She sighed softly, tears slowly slipping down her cheeks as he she slowly said, "I just can't believe you're..... Gone."
