BEST FRIENDS NEVER SAY GOOD-BYE
They proceeded side by side down the long, deserted beach. The stranger with the deep soulful eyes looked at Anna and asked, "What is it about your friendship with Beth that is making you so sad, Anna?"
Anna felt her cheeks flush with anger. "Because she's dead, that's why I'm sad. How can you ask such an obvious question!"
"Ah, but Annie," he continued, seemingly oblivious to her anger, "you just told me the last words Beth spoke before she died were 'I'll always be here for you.' You loved and trusted your friend, didn't you, Annie? Beth O'Neill wouldn't make a promise like that if she didn't intend to keep it."
