In some ways, it felt like twenty years, but in some ways it seemed like yesterday. She remembers him every day, though the horrific pain has dissipated into only a slight jab on her worst days. He was a charming young man, good looking with a talent for making you laugh. He had strong hands and a penchant for conquering the world. She remembers him as he was, never aging, still flexing his muscles and making her laugh. So very long ago...so yesterday.
