Seven years ago.
She turns her face and I catch a glimpse of her profile.
The upturned nose, the curve of her lips, the creamy skin that glows in the late afternoon light. She throws her head back and laughs, and my heart begins to pound in my chest. Sweat beads my palms and I wipe them on my jeans.

She's the girl whom I have tried hard not to think about...
The girl I’d gotten a glimpse of so many years ago.
I have never forgotten her.

No, no, no... I race forward, but I am too late.
