He ran to me and we stood there in each other's arms.
"I love you, it's going to be okay. It's going to be okay," Luke said trying to calm me down. I sobbed in his chest and I could hear him sniffle a bit too.
He broke the hug and held my shoulders. He looked me straight in the eye.
"Please Ashley. Please remember this. I was always, always love you. No matter where you are, I love you," he said and I wiped my tears dry.
"I love you too," I said.
Then we heard the intercom.
"Flight to Sydney, Australia Gate 3 now boarding," I looked at Luke with worried eyes.
"Shhh, it's going to be okay," he said soothingly and I nodded. He grabbed his luggage and then hugged me for the longest time.
"We'll still be to text and FaceTime, it'll be alright," he said trying to make me feel better. But we both knew it wasn't working.
"I love you," he said smiling.
"I love you too," I said trying to smile back. He turned and around and walked slowly toward the gate to the plane. He turned around and waved. I waved back.
Then he threw his bags on the ground and ran up to me and kissed me. He kissed me so powerfully and I loved it. I love him.
He released the kiss.
"We'll see each other soon, okay?" He said.
"Promise?" I asked.
He kissed me cheek and grabbed his bags, "I promise,"
And with that, he left.
