His hand was clamped tight around hers knowing that soon they would have to part, and once more be separated by the vast distance of the Ocean that was between his home and hers.

The bodiless voice echoed around the half empty airport.

He heard the numbers and knew it would soon be time for him to leave. His hand was clamped tight around hers knowing that soon they would have to part, and once more be separated by the vast distance of the Ocean that was between his home and hers.

His heart ached with the knowledge, the coldness of the airport floor reached right into his heart, making him give an involuntary shiver. Her hand gave his a squeeze and he looked into the eyes of the person he cared so much about, and saw a returned look of love.

"I don't want to go." He finally managed to say, " I can't go, I want to stay here with you."

"Love." she replied, "we both know you have to, don't you think I want you to stay with me, but you just can't"

Her arms went around him, and once more he felt the warmth of her love. Flashbacks of all that had happened during this past week, the fun, the laughter, and just how much they cared for each other.

With tears not far from the surface, they stood there and hugged each other.

Another announcement came, this time his planes numbers were called. One last kiss and he turned to go, wiping an imaginary strand of hair from across his face, but really trying to hide a tear.

Suddenly he stopped and turned; running back to her, he hugged her one final time, then, from his pocket he pulled a crumpled envelope. "This Valentine card is for you," he said as he handed her the card, "I'm afraid it got a little… err… ragged in my packing."

She laughed at his obvious embarrassment, before opening the card, and reading the words. She hugged him once more and clasped the valentine to her chest. "It is beautiful" she said "I'll treasure it for ever."

Just then, there was another announcement for his flight.

He started to say something else when there was a tap on his shoulder.

"Come on son, it's time for us to catch our plane. We'll come back and see grandma again soon."
