“When will you return?” she asked. Her eyes were wide, shiny pools of trust and love. Hah, love. For me. I still couldn’t believe it even after all these years.
“Soon,” I said. I kissed her lips lightly, yet I wanted more. But, no. There’s still so much to do. I walked away.
I paused, turned my head. I couldn’t…mustn’t turn back.
She smiled gently. “Take care.” I nodded and left.
Outside, though, I smirked. She was my anchor, my answer.
She was my key at returning to Heaven and taking what was rightfully mine. Yes, a lot indeed.
