She heard the words as clear as the night she had made her promise.

“Whatever happens, wherever you are, I will always be here for you.”

Did he remember her promise? Did he remember her?

She hoped, prayed that he did. Hoped that he understood why she had to leave.

She had seen him once since then. Across a crowded room.

Before she knew it, he was only feet way. She had to talk to him. Renew her pledge. Apologise for breaking it.

He smiled at her.  her. Fighting back tears, she knew it was all right. He did remember.
He understood.
