FFfAW: Always

She leaned gently against the lamppost as he serenaded the crowd with his usual tunes.

I’ll be there till the stars don’t shine
Till the heavens burst and the words don’t rhyme…

She closed her eyes as memories came flooding back. They’d stood here, hand in hand, where he’d mouthed these lyrics.

And I know when I die,
You’ll be on my mind
And I’ll love you always…

Tears trickled down her cheeks. This was the exact moment she’d whispered, you’d better,Β and he’d grinned, nodding in acquiescence.

Now she actually hated herself for ever asking him to acknowledgeΒ those words, words she still couldn’t fathom had come true. She shook her head firmly. No, she mustn’t do this to herself. This was where he’d gone down on one knee and asked her to spend eternity with him. She had to preserve that beautiful moment, no matter how fleeting.

She sighed and started to slowly walk back home. She’d be back again tomorrow. She glanced heavenward and whispered, I’ll love you baby… always.
