"We're best friends forever, Grahamy," she sings as she pulls his soft round head into her chest, just a little too tight. "Best friends forever," she whispers into the sweet baby creases of his neck. His half-hearted protests turn into monosyllabic shrieks and shouts as he pushes her away, hands spread like small chubby stars on her belly. She holds tight just a moment longer, stealing a wet, loud kiss before releasing him. As he pushes himself to standing, she closes her eyes and whispers, "forever, forever, forever," quietly to herself.
Watching from the doorway, I close my own eyes and send a silent petition to the gods of childhood pacts, promises, and pinkie swears, "Please, please remember. Forever, forever, forever."
