It was in the way he said her name. It was bittersweet.

Sweet, because it came from his lips.

Bitter, because it was a goodbye.

"You know I always cared for you, right?" Always. Always cared. Did that seem like a paradox to you? Always, as in, forever, then, now, and later. Cared. Past tense. As in, did.

"I know." She said back. She tried to sound reassuring, but how could she when she didn't really know? Did he really? She remembered the times he had been there for her. Showed up at her dance recital to surprise her, waited for her while she finished a late night at the office, stayed by her side when she cried over nothing.

She did know.

He did care.

"I'm sorry." He whispered softly, and she nodded her head.

Because she was too.

The End
