Wedding band

I love you. You love me too, don’t you? Of course you do. The ring on my finger proves it. Silly me for ever thinking otherwise.

Sweetie? Why do you look scared? It’s just me. Amy. The woman you promised your love to twelve years ago. “Not even at death will we part.” Remember that? It was your vow to me. You told me, time and time again, that you would love me forever. That you would stay by my side and never leave me.

You look pale. I know I left for a while, but you don’t need to treat me like I’m a monster. I had good reason. I had to recover from that wreck I got in. I spent a lot of time in that hospital, so a little time away was needed. The place I went was so peaceful, but I missed you. I want to go back, but not without you.

Quit looking at me like that! I know I look a little different. Nobody would look the same after a wreck like that. But wasn’t it you that said my inner beauty is all that counts? That my face could be melted off by acid, and you would still kiss it every night? Well, kiss me. Come on! You promised. I’ll cry if you don’t.

There we go. See? It’s still me. Now, come with me, like you promised. We need to leave now, so I can show you around the place. We also need to get settled there before our little girl gets out of the hospital.

You heard, right? Well, little Lily had to stay in the hospital a little longer than I did. But she’s leaving soon, and she’s going straight to the place we’re going. This is so exciting. We finally get to be a family again.

Baby, why are you crying? Please stop. This is a good thing. For all of us. Our family will be together in a nice, safe place. Oh, and I forgot to tell you the best part! My parents are there! They’re going to help us settle in. Isn’t that amazing? You and Lily finally get to meet my parents. It’s been so long since I’ve seen them.

Quit arguing. You vowed to me that you would stay with me forever, and I don’t take vows lightly. Plus, Lily’s going there, and she can’t be left without her father.

I’m so excited you finally agreed. Pack? No. Everything we need is already there.

There are special arrangements for the three of us. I just needed to come get you.

Knife? What, this? Oh, it’s nothing. You love me, right? Good. Close your eyes.

Now, kiss me before we leave.

I love you.
