Drama / Romance


It has been eight years since we last saw each other. We've been in touch for two years but after that he just stopped. I was sad at first. I started to think that maybe he finally found a new friend and decided to stop. Time was passing and my I thought about him then I realized that maybe he was just too busy about his new life that he temporarily forgot me. But never have I ever received any contact from him after the two years he'd been gone. So I decided to not wait on him and went on with my life. Things have changed a lot since then. I met new people, I got through high school and college. Now I've been spending my days working at a local bakeshop where my co-workers are like family. I've been happy with everything. But Jake's memory was still lingering on my mind.

He was right about one thing. Having his name hanging around my neck does help in remembering him. Although the necklace isn't the one thing that's reminded me of him. It was my memories with him. It stayed with me and burned at the back of my mind. His promise is also the reason why I never wanted to forget him. My mom once told me that promises are the most precious thing a person can keep. That's why I kept Jake's word. Though I'm just not sure if he'd meant to keep his promise because one thing I realized as I grew up.

"Promises can also be broken."

I clutch the tag plate in my fingers as I lay in bed. I'm just hoping Jake wouldn't break that promise. I closed my eyes and drifted to sleep as I held on tight to the dog tag that bear his name and memory.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Nanasha: I thought I'd written a comment on this story, but for some reason, I guess it didn't go through. Anyway, so this story is intensely addictive.
