“At the time, I swear I could still smell her perfume. Observe her laughter. This all suggests that I had feelings for her. I knew who she was. Because I had the responsibility of keeping her memories, they all flood back to me. We could not be broken. And I will return many times to this path we previously traveled together, missing her every time. “.
