"Are you really leaving for ever Adrian?" My voice squeaked as the tears began to roll down my cheeks. He looked down and shuffled his feet, before looking back up at me, determination in his eyes. "I have a favour to ask of you." His nostrils flared a little as he spoke, his lips pursed. I quickly nodded, and he took my hand. "Wait for me." He squeezed my hand. "Wait for me to come back." His eyes sparkled with determination. "When I come back, we can have as many play dates as we want! I'll even let you play with my toys." I felt my lips curve up in a smile. "Really? Will you really come back?" He nodded. "Of course I will! I'm a man, and men keep their promises." He puffed out his cheeks as he hit his chest with his fist. I giggled and put out my pinkie. "Then I accept your favour. I will wait for you." We linked pinkies, which made it official. I would wait as long as I had to. *** Maya Gray is your typical sixteen year old girl, fighting to survive high school with the help of her best friend, Kimberly.Though being as forgetful as she is proves to be a big challenge when it comes down to the simplest of tasks.Especially when she forgets about her childhood friend and the favour she owed him all together.
