“You’ll come back to me, right?” Merril asked as she hugged Spencer close to her.
“Of couse I will,” Spencer said, kissing her forehead. The bus driver honked his horn and men in camouflage began to board the bus. “That’s my cue…”
“I love you,” Merril said, taking a deep breath to keep from crying.
“I love you too,” Spencer said. He kissed her and squeezed her hands before bordingthe bus, geting a seat next to the window. He waved at her and she waved back. At the last minute, as the bus reved the engine, Merril ran to the bus and Spencer opened the window. “What-“
She grabbed him and pulled him to her, pressing a searing kiss to his lips. “You WILL come home to me, Spencer Willis.”
“Yes Ma’m,” Spencer saluted. He only let go of her hand as the buss pulled away.
“She’s your girl?” the man next to him asked. Spenser smiled.
“She’s my everything.”
