The drive towards the airport was silent. Neither Alex nor Shelley spoke. Shelley looked out of the window while Alex looked at the road ahead of him, while driving the car. Alex parked the car as they arrived at the airport.
"We're here," Alex said as he turned the ignition off. Shelley turned to Alex and nodded.
Alex got out of the car and then walked over to the passenger seat and held the door open for Shelley. Together, still in silence, they walked towards the terminal.
They stopped and turned to one another so they were looking into each others eyes.
"I do not want you to go Alex," Shelley suddenly breaks her silence. "I don't want you to go." Tears welled up in her eyes.
"Neither do I, Shell, neither do I," Alex answer as tears also welled up in his eyes. "I promise you, this is the last time I'm leaving you behind."
Shelley let the tears make a way down her cheek as she answers him "You said the same thing the last time you left."
"I know, I am sorry," he whispered honestly. "I will come back," he told her as he looked deep into her eyes. "I will always come back to you."
"I know," she said as she leaned in to kiss him. "I just hate it when you leave so unexpected."
"I hate it as well. But there's nothing I can do. I'll make it very clear to them that I'm not going to take another trip." He kissed her again "I am not going to leave you again. I promise you," he promised as he looked into her eyes. "I promise."
Shelley looked at him as if she didn't believe him.
"This time I will keep my promise. I will do anything in my power, which I don't really have, but I won't go on another tour. I promise you." He suddenly smiled. "I promise you from the bottom of my heart I will love you till death to us part…" he slowly sang, knowing in his heart that she needed to hear those words. Or at least three of them.
"I love you as well," she replied and they kissed once more. Then after one last hug Alex walked over to his 4 friends who were waiting for him.
"Hey AJ," they all greeted him but he did not hear them. His eyes were fixed on the beautiful woman standing by his car.
"I love you Alex and I will wait for you no matter how long it takes," Shelley whispered to the figure staring intently at her.
"I will come back, Shell, I promise. I love you," Alex whispered to the winds and when he saw her nodding he knew she'd heard him. Then it was time to leave and he saw her figure getting smaller and smaller till he could no longer see her. "I will come back," he promised one last time before he left.
