Promise

by Anonymous

Preface

I promised you a happy ending, didn't I?

I'll wait for you. Promises have to be kept, after all.


Today was his birthday.

But every year now, I gave him the same present.

It couldn't be helped; I couldn't think of anything else to offer him.

With a sigh, I leave the flowers at the foot of his grave.

...

What if we could be together forever? Wouldn't that be amazing? I don't want to rush anything, but... I'd like to spend the rest of my life with you. Let's get married.

...

You make me so happy. If I died now, I would die a happy man. Don't say that.

...

It's nothing. I promise. Don't worry about it! I would never lie to you. I'll take care of it, okay?

...

"I... I'll have it soon. Yes, I know... I know... I will bring it to you soon. I know. I'm sorry. Please... don't hurt her."

...

Hey, you look down. Cheer up! What's wrong? I promise, everything will work out.

...

"I know what I said! I know... I just can't get it right now! No! I said I'll bring it later! Please, just a little more time..."

...

I'm sorry. I know I have been absent a lot, but I'm just overwhelmed with work. I know, we'll spend time together soon. I just need to go right now.

...

"No... I don't have it... I... I understand. You... you won't hurt her, will you...? She has nothing to do with it."

...

I'm fine.

...

Don't worry! I just have some... business to take care of. I'll be back for dinner, so save me some, okay? Yes, okay... love you too.

...

...

...

Hello? Excuse us, madam. Is this him? Yes... your husband? He...he was found dead due to unknown factors. We are working on it. Yes... my condolences.

...

Hey. I told you we would be together forever, didn't I?

I made many mistakes, but...

It was a promise.

I'll wait for you.

Things will be different next time.

We'll meet again in a different universe.

I'm sorry.

I love you.
