His last words to me before he left for the capital, were "Three words, eight letters. Always." He thought I knew what he meant, but there were so many other things that could be. "I love you," ususally, but "I hate you," "I am going," etc. What was his meaning? He couldn't be saying "I love you," because we've been best friends since we were born. Just friends, right? I didn't know any more.
