It began with one of those friendships that feel like they’re meant to last a lifetime.
Something beautiful in its disaster, a chaotic wonderland where love didn’t need to be romantic in order to be perfect. It survived a decade, lived through trauma, nirvana, and everything in between.
But then, it just…disappeared.
A forgotten wedding invitation. A text message left on read. A promise of “we’ll talk every day” that got lost in a marriage, a pregnancy, a life.
The friendship faded. Became white noise in a past better left tucked away in the back of a closet of memories. A finite lifetime.
Yet you can’t just forget a friendship like that. Destiny won’t allow it.
Neither will Death.
