He fought the memories of her as though it was a war he could never win. Her scent in the air, he knew she was near, but his hands could never reach far enough to pull her back home. He will forever regret the day he pushed her away. His words harsh, though he never meant a word. She will never know that was the day he saved her life. You see, life with him would never be the happily ever after her childish heart desired. Life without her would forever be an existence that he wished would cease forever.
