A quick one shot that tells a story of depression and sadness, it was written during a dark time for me.

I only recently finished it, it just kept eating away at me and I finally got to a place where I can finish it well.

I stood alone in a large dark room, waiting for some sign that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. But none came. I quickly realized that I was alone and that there was no light, no happiness, and no love. I fell to my knees and sobbed for what seemed like an eternity. Then a voice called me back to reality. I looked up to find a tall figure standing in front of me. I stood tall and looked the figure in the eyes, what I saw was my light, my hope, my love. I saw Jade. She pulled me into an embrace and I returned the embrace. I could hear her voice, it was comforting somehow, I relaxed and used one of my hands to wipe the tears from my eyes before realizing that the figure had gotten taller and had fur. I looked up to meet the new figure's eyes. They were as blue as the sky. When she spoke I heard nothing but love and a caring that no one had ever had for me. She told me "You will never be alone, I will never be far, when you need someone, I will be here, when you need a friend, I will be here, when you need a lover, I will be here." I answered with "Where have you been my entire life? I needed you for so much. Where were you?" I dropped the embrace and turned. I looked back after a moment and she was gone. I bowed my head and sighed "I knew she was not really there." I turned around into a kiss. It lasted for what seemed like an eternity before she broke it. "I told you, no matter what, I will be here." She turned and walked away. I started to chase after her, and I woke up. I sat up and looked around. The dark walls were gone and replaced with my room. I looked on my bedside table to find a folded paper. I opened it and read it aloud. What was on the paper I will never forget.

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed
footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of
footprints,
other times there were one set of
footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of
footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of
footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of
footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."

What was on the bottom of the paper was, "I stand by what I said, and this should prove it. I love you and I will always be here." Jade
