8. Let's Promise

Liam's POV


After staying out on the balcony for a good hour, I had finally decided what I would do for part of the day.


I got in my car and drove down the street to the city cemetery where my beloved sister was buried. I slowly turned into the narrow driveway and carefully weaved my car through the paths to the destined gravestone with her name on it.


It wasn't hard to find it considering last time my mother came, she left a lit up lamp post in hopes my sister would find her way back. I came to a stop in front of her sight and got out of the car. I crouched down in front of her stone and gently put down the daisies. Her favorite flowers.


I stared down at the words that were engraved in the marble:

Clarissa Payne


Beloved Daughter and Sister

"You brought light to this world"


I felt a tear prick out of my eye and I quickly wiped it away. There's not a day that goes by where I don't miss her. I have something new to tell her everyday. I stood up and walked back to my car and away from all of the painful memories.



I was now sitting in the back of the cafe on my break. I was studying for a physics test when I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket. I pulled it out and smiled at the name that flashed on the screen. Diana. We had exchanged numbers sometime when she was over and this is the first time that she had contacted me. I would've done it first but I was too scared. I unlocked my phone and read her message.


From: Diana


Hey bug, I'm getting pretty lonely up here at this empty counter. Mind being a good employee and help meee?

xx D.


I put my phone down and walked back out to the front counter where I found her with a bag in her hand.


"What's this?" I asked.


"Oh this? This is our lunch. Now come on before the park gets crowded." She said walking behind the counter and grabbing my hand.


"I'm sorry, our lunch?" I asked as I was reluctantly being pulled by this demanding female.


"Well yeah. I figured you were on break and maybe wanted to get away for a bit. So why not a picnic in nature?"


"Uhh, okay."


She dragged me all the way out of the front door and we both walked to the park which was only across the street. Our hands were so close as we walked that it looked like we could've been holding hands. But we weren't. And I so desperately wanted to.


We found the tree and sat down setting the bag by us.


"So what did chef Diana cook up for us today?" She laughed as she stuck her hand in the back and took out two disoriented sandwiches. She noticed my weird look and laughed again.


"What? These are just some vegetarian sandwiches that I make myself. My own recipe." She says wiggling her eyebrows.


She handed me one of them and I slowly took it from her. I put it up to my nose and sniffed it, still unsure with my judgement. Diana noticed my apprehensive look and took the sandwich out of my hand, tore a piece off, and shoved it in my mouth. I looked at her with wide eyes as I began to chew. Surprisingly, it wasn't that bad.


"Mm, I kinda like it." Her face lit up.


"See! I knew you would."


The rest of the time we ate in silence just enjoying each others presence. I could feel a pair of eyes on me and when I turned to my right, I found a pair of browns looking at me.






Now it was my turn to stare at her. She then turned her head back at me.


"Let's promise. Promise to be friends to beyond."


I smiled knowing that she wanted some type of friendship to start and that she was blunt about it.


"Okay. I promise."




She smiled once more and laid down on her back and stared at the sky. I followed suit and moved closer to her feeling the crisp, autumn wind moving across our faces.


"Hey Liam?"


I turned my head towards her. "Mm?"


"Can you promise me one more thing?" She said barely above a whisper.


"Sure, anything."


"Just...just don't fall in love with me."


I just looked at her as my heart sank a little. "O-okay."


"Trust me, you'll thank me in the end."
