Secrets We Swear to Keep
“I swear,” said Lily, “I’ll never tell a soul about what happened that night.”
“Me too,” said Emma.
The two girls shook hands, sealing their pact. It was a weighty secret, one that they would carry with them forever.
They had both seen something that they shouldn’t have. Something that was so horrible, so unthinkable, that they had to swear not to tell anyone. Not even their closest friends or family.
It was a burden, but it was one they would bear together. Because that was what friends were for.
