Little Suzy came back from school very upset.
'Shelly's mum has gone away with another daddy. Are you going to run away with another daddy too? You and Daddy always fight'.
She doesn't know what to say and feels bad that her little girl heard the endless arguments.
She scooped her in her arms, hugging her tightly, saying: 'I promise, I'll never leave you'.
Suzy smiles for the first time. 'Thank you Mummy, I love you. You never break a promise.'
She looks at her daughter.
No, she wouldn't break her promise, she would take her daughter with her, always.
