Lemon also admitted that the boy had no flaws but she still had to break up for a reason. She asks the boy not to contact her again. But the boy couldn't resist texting her when she remained absent from school. “Will you promise to never take me out of your heart? Will you promise when you get married, imagine me in the audience cheering for you, with tears, because I know the woman in white won’t be me," she leaves a final cryptic message before blocking the boy's number. Later on, the girl's mom texts the boy to let him know that she has passed away from heart failure and sends him the details of her funeral.
