I'll Never Forget You
Jackie was due to pick Jane up at 5. Jane called Jackie at 4:30 to remind her. Jackie again said, "Don't worry, I won't forget you." At five minutes to 5 Jane bundled up and went the appointed spot to wait for her ride. After 30 minutes, Jane, frozen stiff, began to worry. She called again. "Don't worry. I didn't forget you" was the answer she got. Jane jumped around to try to keep warm. Another hour passed and still no Jackie appeared. Jane called again and got the same message.
Finally, three hours later Jackie showed up. By then it was too late. Jane was on the ground, her body rigid from the hypothermia brought on by the frigid temperature. Jackie started to scream, "Why did you die? I didn't forget you." Alas, it was too late.
RIP Jane. Now, you will not be forgotten.
