    You won't believe what's gonna happen?

    Hi everyone!
    Okay so here is my story. My sister after an accident and a 2 months fight in coma has left us. During the whole time my family and I kept asking her to fight and she did. One day we received the result of a very important test that showed that my sister's brain was completely damaged and therefore we told her that she fought well and that we let her go. She suddenly became calm, relaxed and seemed peaceful. Since I live in Australia I planned on coming back but I still made a video where I read a text that I wrote to her. It was my goodbye to my sister. Few hours after my moter played it to her she let it go.
    This is the story as quick as I can make it, doesn't need to explain you the feelings that comes with it.
    I want to tattoo my body with a drawing and want to add some text to it.
    At the end of my text that I wrote in french I told her a sentence in english. Those were the last words she ever heard from her little brother and I want them with me all the time. The problem is I realise the sentence might not be correct...
    I told her "You won't believe what's gonna happen", since in the letter I promise her I will live for two as she will be with me all the time and I will make her live the most incredible life.. Now I realise I should have probably say "You won't believe what happens next"...
    What do you think? Does the first option still make sense?

    And finally another quick question, have you heard of any english saying meaning "live for two" or anything similar?

    Sorry if those request seems weird to anyone, I simply want everything to be perfect as you can imagine why...

    Thanks in advance

    "You won't believe what's going to happen" makes more sense to me.
