I remember the last time I saw you. You were just nine years old. We were talking and laughing as you showed me your lego collection on the living room floor.

Your dream was to go to Legoland. I promised I would take you there one day soon. You gave me a toothy grin as you asked, “How soon is soon Auntie?”
