736 words - 3 pages

I pushed past the curtain to Shield.

"Hero!" Shield smiled at me.

"Hi," I offered a small smile.

Shield paused and stared at me, tilting her head. "What's wrong?"

Shield let out a laugh and grabbed me by my hands. "Hero, you'll find him. I doubted that I would find my husband and yet, look at me now," She smiled.
