She saw a road blockade and swirling yellow and red lights up ahead, along with two police cars on either side of it.
It was a dead end.
It was over.
She felt him slow down the vehicle.
He looked at her then.
“What do you want to do?” He asked her simply.
She took a deep breath and looked from him then back to the barricade.

She saw the hurt in his eyes once the words had been said. She knew he felt like he was letting her down. She knew he hadn’t. This was inevitable. She knew her husband wouldn’t stop looking for her, not because he loved her, but because she was his property. She touched his forearm lightly and then took off her seat belt. She leaned forward and kissed him on his lips. He kissed her back. A loud sob escaping. Neither knew if it was theirs.
“No matter what happens Nick, I love you. Do you understand? No matter what you see or what you hear. My heart is yours. It always will be.” She felt the tears sliding down her face then. She let them fall.
“We will be together again. I promise.” He said it more as a fact than as a statement.
