Promise me you’ll love again. I hear the last words my wife said to me every day.A promise I have never and will never fulfill.My heart is stone. Impenetrable. I don’t care. I spent twenty years in prison for a crime I didn’t commit. The punishment is what I deserved. For not being there for her. I’m on one mission now. And it isn’t to find love like I promised.It’s to kill the man that killed my wife.It’s near the anniversary of her death now and I’m in the woods, camping.Hunting. Keeping my skills sharp. And that’s when I happen upon her. She’s stumbling naked in the forest, cut, bruised, and half dead. I should give her to the authorities, but something about her makes the stone of my heart crumble a bit. But years ago, I made a promise I couldn’t keep.And this girl is better off without me. I’m tarnished. No matter what, no matter how tempted, no matter how much I crave her touch, I cannot give in. Promises are made to me broken. But can I live with broken promises? The more I convince myself that I can, the more whiskey says I can’t.Love is the worst bender you can go on.
