Nothing that I post belongs to me, unless I say otherwise.
So last night at Soma my friend and I snuck past security to the buses to find Of Mice & Men. When we finally found their bus we couldnt move from the front of the bus because there were security guards everywhere and so we were crouched down in front of the bus. And then all the sudden i hear “what are you guys doing” i turn and i saw it was Aaron going to hang up his clothes. I was so excited and we hugged him and then we began talking and ended up having a 40 minute conversation with him about life and silly things and it was so amazing. He gave us life advice and told us stories and we just all sat on the curb and talked and he hugged us a few more times before he left. He gave us water which i’m now calling Pauley water because of reasons. Then Aaron said he would try to see if Austin could come out after his shower but no promises. So Austin did come out, and I was trying so hard not to cry. And i told him “you may not remember me but last time i saw you..” “Oh at the observatory right, I’m sorry what was your name again?” “Yes, Brooke! Well um last time I saw you I told you i couldn’t promise you I would never self harm again, because I was not ready to but i did promise you I wouldn’t take my own life. So I said that if I saw you again I would promise I would never self harm again, and I am ready to make that promise.” Austin smiled really big and said “oh wow really! Im so happy you’re here not here like talking to me, I’m so so happy you’re alive, I don’t know if anyone has ever told you this but I am so proud of you and I love you” and then he hugged me really tight for a long time. And I was crying by this point and he was still hugging me and then he started telling me that I should always remember that he loves me so much and even when life is really hard it will get better and I need to be there when it does. And then he said he’d be right back and he came back a few minutes later with a letter in his hand. He kissed the folded up paper put in my purse and said “you cant read this until you wake up tomorrow okay, and i want you to read it every day to remind yourself that you are loved and i am so proud of you.” And then he said “I love you so much don’t forget it” and then he hugged me really tight and I just cried on his shoulder for a bit and I told him thank you so much for being my hero and caring when no one else did and saving my life and he continued to hug me while I cried. Then he really had to go (he was only supposed to be out there a few minutes) but he stayed out there just to hold me why I cried. I can’t believe It happened it was the best night of my whole life. I will treasure this letter for ever.
so im really excited to announce that I will be seeing Of Mice & Men again at this same venue in 2014. Which will mark a year since Austin wrote me this letter. I cant wait to see them all again and tell them what progress Ive made in my recovery.
This is just so beautiful! I just love Austin even more & I’m very proud of you!!
