She just received a gift. But what could it mean?
She dropped the opened box. Her hands were shaking.
It was a ripped piece of paper. Attached with a string was the band of trust.
A golden ring which spun in the light.
All she could read was, “I’m sorry” before the tears overwhelmed her eyes.
Even if she wanted to know the rest she couldn’t.
Blood covered the rest of the pain that followed.
