My Soldier (*Completed*)
"Do you have to leave?" I say through tears.
"I promise I'll be home before you know it."
That's a lie. It'll feel longer than what it actually is. And it will all feel like hell.
"I'll be lost and...and...alone without you, Matt" I sob even harder.
"Don't say that. You'll have Aunt Kathy and Jo. Trust me when I say this: they know exactly what they're doing. They've been through plenty of these before."
I nod, not trusting my voice, afraid I'll break down again. His hand comes to my cheek as he wipes a tear that's falling. His arms then indulge me in a huge hug, his familiar cologne invading my nostrils.
"STARKS! We're boarding!" I flinch at the fact that its time to let him go.
He kisses the top of my head,
"I love you." He whispers in my ear.
"I love you too." I respond weakly.
"I love you most."
And with a final, hard kiss, he walks away from me.
Kathy holds me and lets me cry on her shoulder as Matt looks back at me, and walks into the plane.
