They met on a summer day. One of her first. One of his many.
He made her laugh and chased away the monsters under her bed.
But her Daddy called and he had to go.
She waited for months. He waited for hours.
They met again and danced. She was falling in love. He was solving a mystery.
The questions called and he had to go.
She waited for years. He waited for minutes.
They met in secret. She had grown. He was starting to understand.
Her fiancée called and he had to go.
She waited a lifetime. He waited for seconds.
He came back just as they were taking her away. He knew she had loved him all her life and he cried.
