Author’s Note: This is a short chapter simply because I didn’t want to give anything away before we get started hehe. Hopefully you guys have your tissues ready because this is going to be completely different than my other Denny Duquette fanfic. I’ll also attempt to add some songs, you know, like incredibly sad songs. I hope you guys enjoy this. It’s going to be one emotional rollercoaster.

I couldn’t believe he was asking me. Here he was, lying on a hospital bed and waiting for any sign of good news about receiving a new, healthy heart.
He extended his hand to cup my cheek. He must have noticed that I was on the brink of tears. I didn’t know what to say, even though I knew what my answer would be.
His eyes were glistening. Being in this hospital for months was beginning to take a toll on him and now that he was on the LVAD, the chances of him going home were slim to none. He was getting antsy and irritated.
Every little thing bothered him, but right now, he was determined.
“Denny,” I whispered.
I didn’t know why I couldn’t find the one simple word that I desperately wanted to say. He didn’t have a ring, but, how could he? He had been attached to this bed for months.
“Maisie,” he replied.
