Superficial Daughters

The two of us were looking in the bathroom mirror as I rushed to get ready for a somewhat important event.

The Most Important Thing You Can Do For Her

“Boston,” I ask, “Will you be my best friend forever?”
“Even when your 16?”
“Yes, forever and ever!”

I feel the tears begin to burn. I wonder, what really lies ahead for us?
