It’s Hard to Say “Goodbye”

 This story takes place before the events of Incantus Academy, book one.

A young girl, about to turn 8, walked over to a tree crying. An 8-year-old boy was waiting for her, “What’s wrong, Alice!” He said when he noticed that she was crying. “I-I-I’m…I’m moving to another town, my dad just got a grant and he’s having my family move closer to where the dig site is.” After she said that she collapsed on the ground, sobbing uncontrollably. The boy walked over to her and put his arm around her. “Ali, it’s going to be okay.” “YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND!” She yells, “I’m moving to a town that is hours away, we’ll never see each other again!” She looked down at her lap and said in a low voice, “I don’t want to forget you, Dylan.” Dylan smiled at her, “You won’t, I neither will I.” Alice stared at him, “How could we, we’re going to be hours apart.” “All we have to do is make sure that we do things that will help us remember,” Dylan says smiling, “and who knows, maybe we will meet again someday. So it’s not ‘goodbye’, just ‘till we meet again’!” Alice smiled at this and said, “Well, till we meet again. But, before I go, let's write one last song together so we don’t forget each other!”
