Epilogue

"We're right here beside you
We won't let you slip away
Plan for tomorrow,
'Cause we swear to you,
You're going to be ok."
(Scrubs Cast)

The sunrise that morning was amazing. The most amazing sunrise you'll ever see. I don't know, maybe it was because I spent it with the girl that I was totally in love with, maybe it was because I'd had the chance to affect a family in the way Romulus had, I don't know. Either way, the sunrise was amazing. Ellen and I walked solemnly to the church, knowing full well what was going to happen I stood in the smartest black suit I had, her in a long flowing black gown. It was weird, all I could think about was how we'd all dressed up solely for the one guy that couldn't see how nice we all looked. I don't know, none of it had really hit me yet. I hadn't quite grown accustomed to life without Theo. I mean sure, I knew he was gone, and that hurt, but I'd not really realized that I didn't have him to watch my back anymore.

Now don't try to take anything from this story. Don't think that you can just go into hacking and unplug whenever you want, you can't. Don't think that losing a friend is easy. I speak from the heart when I tell you that there is not a day goes by that I don't miss Theo. There is not a day goes by that I don't find something that reminds me of him. But day by day it gets easier, day by day I grow more accustomed to it. And the longer I spend without him, the more I realize just how much I do off my own back. It sounds weird, but they say that every bad thing happens for a reason, and I can kinda see the reason in Theo's death. It felt good to finally be able to see the sun breaking through the clouds.
