They met again at a school reunion at a karaoke lounge. He couldn’t make eye contact, unsure of his response in proximity with her.
The song she sang was the song he wrote her, a declaration of love that he had to witness. It wasn’t for him. She had another.
The following day, he learns that she’s a contractor in his company. Proximity could not be helped; nor could he help his heart.
He had many memories, including one night where he let her piggy-back home. That night, he made a promise, tied in a platonic friendship.
It weighed him on for four years.
All they had left was a hidden token of love. Waiting to be discovered.
