The Promise 1

He promised he would never leave me, never leave me wondering, never would disappear.
Never, ever, ever.
But now…
He’s gone.

The day he made me that promise, was the last day I ever saw him. We were the best of friends, knowing each other since we were nothing more than toddlers. Growing up together, teasing each other, making mistakes with the other right behind us. We knew each other like the back of our hand.

That day I had just turned the ripe age of 16. I had told him weeks prior to give me the best gift in the world. Little did he know that anything he gave me would be the best gift ever. He was my best friend, and we were in love. Innocent, pure, faithful love. Not many people find that in this world.
