Tears welled in his eyes as he waited…and waited…and waited.
“SAMMY!” Mikey flung the car door open before his mother put it into park and sprinted to the picnic table. “SAMMY!”

Mikey held Sammy and walked back to the car while his mother latched the old suitcase and put it in the trunk.
“I’m never forgetting you again, Sammy.” Mikey buckled Sammy into the seat next to him and held his paw. “I’m sorry.”
