Love will show the way

‘I am not going anywhere!’ she exclaimed, in her -I have made up my mind- tone. ‘But it’s your birthday party,’ I said, and then I thought to my self how upset she would be to refuse to celebrate her happy day with her friends. Today was not the first day. She has been underground…

‘I promise you, this is the last time you will ever cry,’ he said looking at her bleary eyes. ‘No more sorrow, no more pain…’ and before she could say anything, he added, ‘no more questions.’ With possibilities clasped in their hands, they started a new journey. ‘I know you love sunsets, but you know we can watch…
