Seine

Late at night, he follows her to a bridge in Paris. She stops halfway across. He halts too, hidden from her view. He watches her jump into the icy waters of the Seine. His first urge is to jump in after her; save her. Yet he doesn’t, for she has betrayed not only him, but country, family, and friends.

That becomes the story of his life. The one he could never tell until his memory of her began to fade.
