My Danny


I kissed her goodbye and grabbed my shoes from the hallway. I hated leaving her, and she hated me going. I didn't like where I worked, but since it was just me and her, I didn't really get a choice. We needed money, I needed to earn it. She got lonely sometimes though. I knew she did but she'd never let it show. We left all our friends behind when we ran away. Maybe people were right. Maybe we were too young to be living together. She never minded what people thought though, my Annie, she never listened to what they said either.
