They met fourteen years prior, and had since spent every second together. Having first been best friends, the pair felt an unbreakable connection, and knew that despite any obstacle that may come their way, nothing was strong enough to destroy their bond. With that bond came a knowledge of the other. They could read each other’s emotions perfectly, and knew when the other was lying. Not that it mattered, seeing as they told each other everything.
As the years progressed, so did their feelings. What once was thought of as a strong friendship soon blossomed into more, and before long the two began going out. They loved each other more than life itself, and they completed one another. She was the daredevil, and he was the calm one. She was spontaneous, and he planned things out. She was social, and he liked to live his life in the shadows. They were opposites in near every way, but somehow that’s what made them work. They were two separate pieces to a painting, and together they formed a masterpiece.
Though the two were different in their personality, they both shared one common goal. As children, it was normal for all kids to want to do outrageous jobs when they got older. Some wanted to be astronauts, and some opted out for the ‘danger-at-every-turn’ special agent. But when they grew older and wiser, their goals changed. They soon aspired to be doctors and lawyers, leaving their childhood fantasies behind them. This, however, wasn’t the case for the two best friends. Their dreams never changed, and they never stopped working to accomplish them. The two both wanted to be a part of the CIA, and found a special thrill in the adrenaline-pumping rush that is secret agent field work.
The minute that the two stepped out of college, they sought out to become spies. They stayed physically fit, mentally fit, and through it all, together. After a few month’s of agonized waiting, the pair were finally both cleared and offered a job. By some miracle, the agency allowed the two to work as partners. Side by side, they fought their way through wars, explosions, assassins, and other everyday tasks. They both had their fair share of near-death experiences, but they kept moving forward, each ready to die in place of the other if need be.
Though they knew they were only human, and could be killed at any second, they still thought of themselves as untouchable. They believed nothing could penetrate the walls they built up through the years, and saw near no danger in their career choice. That is why it came as a surprise to them both when their wall was broken down, and everything they once knew to be theirs was taken away from them.
For fourteen years he had known her, loved her, and in one second she was taken away. His name was Drew Parker, and this is his story.
