They were walking on a silent road. She'd hear him breathing heavily. It was their last day together. Tomorrow he'd fly to Canada, and she would return to Kenya.
Their hands were still twinned together but eyes were far apart.
She knew her house is not too far from where they were walking but the journey seemed like never ending.
He broke the ice. "I'm leaving tomorrow!" his eyes glued to the road.
"I know, I'm leaving for Kenya tomorrow as well. I'm sure we will meet soon". She knew it was a lie.
Before she would blink he asked,"Will you wait for me till I return?" he hoped within for a positive answer.
She didn't utter a word. All she did was hugged him.
She was waiting for this. Somehow he took too long to express. Their childhood friendship is now turned into a relationship. But little they knew, long distance relationship is all about expressing love.
