The promise we made that day was broken, its been 10 years sence we made it and he didn't keep it. Yet I still have hope, I still believe Laurance will come back.
We promised to always be by each others side and always be there for each other because we were best friends.
Now I sit here alone only 15 and I've lost everything. I'm alone here well hes moving on forgetting about me and all our memories, about the promise we made. He's surrounded by friends and he's as happy as ever, well I'm alone in a cloud of depression I can't excape.
Will he remember, remember the promise we made the night of their death, the night I almost died. Or will I always be here alone with only my memories to keep me from losing my mind.
Tomorrows will be ten years since they died, and nine years since I last talked to Laurance. Tomorrow marks the worst days of my life. It's not only the day I lost my parents but also the day I lost my best friend, my only friend. 
 
Today's the day I go to the grave yard to pay my respect to my parents. But I don't want to go not this year because all I can think of is the promise, the broken promise
 
I had no choice I had to come here to pay respect for my parents. Wait a minute someone else has been here their grave stones are cleaned off and there are flowers. Hmm I wonder who came here before me, I didn't see anyone around when I came here and it's only 6 am. Anyways 
"Hey mom and dad, it's me Trixi. I brought you some flowers
But I guess I didn't have to swing they already have some.
" oh ya I saw Laurance the other day, do you remember him? My best friend? Well before the accident
I most not cry, not now, not here.
"Anyways Laurance  looked happy and his parents are doing good too they brought me some dinner last night"
But of course Laurance never came, no one want to see me anymore not after the fire burnt my arm. Now I'm ugly, my arms all scars, and people at the store call me a demon. 
"Mom, Dad I'm doing good to you don't have to worry....... I- I'm okay..... I-I'm horrible
I can't hide it anymore I have to stop hiding how I feel. I.... I'm done I can't go on....
"Hey don't cry Trixi I'm here still please don't cry
I know that voice, I've heard it before....
"L-Laurance is that you? What are you doing here?"
"I made you a promise, a promise I shouldn't have broke, I'm sorry Trixi please don't cry, I'm here now"
"Why didn't keep the promise? You left me alone for 9 years and I didn't know what to do" I say before tears start rolling down my cheek
" Trixi I'm sorry my family and I moved away for 8 years and when we got back I was to scared to come visit you, I thought you'd hate me, I'm sorry" he says before kneeling down in front of me, so we are face to face.
"You were my best friend Laurance, I'd never hate you" I say in a whispering voice.
"Trixi I'm sorry I'll never leave you alone to deal with this again" Laurance says before wrapping his arms around me, giving me a gentle hug.
I freeze and the tears stop. What do I do? He's so close!
My heart starts to pound faster and faster, then I feel my cheeks getting hotter. Oh no I'm blushing! But why am I in love with Laurance? I know I feel better when ever he's around but is it really because I like him.... No it's because I love him I always have but I can't tell him, I can't show him my true feelings.
 
"Trixi!? Trixi are you in there" I snap back onto reality to hear him calling my name. 
I look up to see his face only inches from mine. I'm so surprise I jump up hitting my head on his.
"Owe! Sorry! Are you okay?" I start yelling, then my cheeks start to burn in embarrassment again. 
"Haha Ya I'm fine sorry I didn't mean to scare you. Hey! Wait!? Why are you cheeks so red? Are you feeling okay?"  He asks with a concerned look on his face.
"Y-ya I'm f-fine" I say turning my head trying to hide me face. 
"Trixi don't hide your face. Come on look u....." Before finishing what he was saying he turns my face gently and our eyes meet.
 
We just stared at each other for away are eyes locked together, neither one of us showed any sign of turning away. 
Suddenly his face starts getting closer and closer. My cheeks begin to flush red again as he gets closer. 
"Trixi I love you" Laurance whispers in a calming,gentle voice. 
Before I could response Laurence's lips met mine.  The warmth of his lips against mine made me melt. He wrapped his arms around me again. 
I stayed there hoping this this moment would never end, then our lips parted and are eyes locked together once again.
Without any thought or hesitation I finally responded to what he said "I love you too Laurance"
 
Then I opened my eyes and saw the walls to my room around me , it was all a dream, a dream I wish would have never ended.
