Love Waltzes In

A Marine’s Promise
I made a promise once.
To a dying man. I swore to him that I’d take care of his wife and kids if he passed away on the battlefield.
Fifty thousand dollars. For humiliating myself on national television, spending time with the woman who’d left me, losing my privacy, becoming the laughing stock of the Marine Corps. Hand me my dance shoes.
