She slowed to a stop as she approached him, maintaining a short distance between them as she smiled.

'Kevin' she spoke. 'It's so good to see you.'

He smiled back at her, the edges of his lips twitching nervously.

'I've missed you' he breathed.

Lisa left him for a short time, visiting her father's home to drop off her luggage, meeting Kevin again at the base of the building her father was staying.

'It's good to get rid of my stuff' she smiled sweetly at him. 'I hated dragging that suitcase around.'

Kevin smiled warmly back at her.

'Where shall we go first?' she asked him, holding her hands behind her back and swaying.

'Well…' he began nervously, 'a-are you hungry?'

'Yeah' she smiled. 'Let's go get something to eat together. Take me to a nice place' she beamed.

'Ha' Kevin breathed, 'a-alright…let me think.' He paused for a moment. 'Ok…I know where we should go. It's this way' he pointed, turning to walk in that direction.

'Ok' Lisa replied happily, moving to walk with him.

She reached out to him as they went, taking him by the hand as they walked together.

Kevin stared ahead trying to remain calm, but he couldn't swallow the lump in his throat, and all he could hear was blood rushing in his ears.

I can't believe after all this time we're together again he thought to himself, grasping her hand tighter in his.

……I've missed her so much……

They walked for a long time together, moving away from the centre of the town, and towards quieter areas on the outskirts.

The town was a very busy place, but on the edges there were patches of greenery, little areas of woodland, scattered areas of tranquillity. When they were children, Kevin and Lisa often came to areas like these to play, they would make dens together, swings and shelters. They hid away often in their days together, Kevin remembered on rainy days they would huddle together, they would bring food out to these places and have picnics and play board games.

In one of these dens many years ago, they had shared their first kiss.

Kevin and Lisa spent hours together, catching up on old times, talking, smiling, laughing.

Lisa and Kevin sat side by side, facing the little stream that trickled water. The leaves blew gently around them, and the little birds sang. As time went on, Kevin began to relax a little, getting over his initial nerves. Lisa on the other hand, had been completely relaxed from the moment that had met at the train station.

At one point, Lisa shuffled closer to Ke

vin, leaning into him, her head bowed against his shoulder.

Kevin's heart skipped in his chest as she did this, staring down at her with wide eyes.

He let out a sigh, shoulders relaxed. Kevin dipped his head, resting his cheek against Lisa's head.

He put his arm around her, holding her close.

After that, Kevin and Lisa went back to Kevin's home to see his parents. They welcome Kevin and Lisa warmly, cooking for them, the four of them shared a meal together.

As Lisa spoke to both his parents, telling them about her life, Kevin felt a strong surge of love towards her.

Kevin had known Lisa almost his entire life, and from the very moment they first met as children, they had liked each other, and had become close friends.

Over the years, Kevin's feelings towards Lisa had changed, gradually becoming something more than just friendship. But it had never progressed anywhere, as Lisa had moved away with her father due to his work. Losing her that day felt like his heart had been ripped from his chest. Now she had come back to him.

Kevin put his elbow on the table, resting his chin on his palm as he watched Lisa continue to talk to his parents happily.

At the back of his mind however, another memory stirred within him, of another girl he had once known and lost, but of one he would never see again.

Afterwards, Kevin walked Lisa home.

'Thank you for today' Lisa said to him, as they reached the building her father was staying. 'I really had fun today.'

'Yeah' Kevin smiled widely. 'I did too.'

'It was really nice to see you again…after all this time.'

'Yeah…it was…' Kevin replied, 'I mean…it was nice to see you again.'

She smiled.

'Can we meet again, ' Lisa asked him, 'tomorrow maybe?'

'I would love that' Kevin nodded. 'I want to see you as much as possible before you go.'

She nodded slowly.

'Maybe you can tell me how you got those bruises' she said to him.

Kevin's heart jolted then, as he raised his hand unconsciously to his face.

'This…this is nothing…' he mumbled.

'Don't lie to me' she spoke softly.

Kevin smiled in return.

'See you tomorrow then' she said to him, stepping forward and giving him a tight hug.

'Yeah' Kevin mumbled, holding her back. 'I look forward to it.'

She stepped back, looking up into his face. She was a head shorter than him, and her height only came up to the top of his shoulders.

'Well then' she sighed, 'bye….'

She turned and walked away, the skirt of her dress swaying as she went.
