I Will Always Come Back
"I will stay safe. I promise," I said, pulling back and looking her in the eyes. They were red and puffy from crying, and her face was tearstained. I dried her tears, and her sobbing slowed to a stop. She took a shuddering breath and hugged me tightly.
"You promise?" Míreth said quietly.
"I promise," I whispered back. I held her tightly. "When I come back, we can live a happy, normal life together. I will come back. Alright?" I hoped the word together would hit a nerve. I did. Míreth pulled back, new tears of hope in her eyes. When they started spilling down her face, I dried them quickly with my shirtsleeve.
I do not own any of the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit characters. I only own Míreth and the characters I made up.
I changed the cover and title. I thought this would be a bit more related to the story. Just letting you know, so if you have this book in your library, you won't freak out about having a new book you never saw in your life there. :)
