I’m back with Adrinette Month Day 12: Childhood Friends! I’ve been working on this AU for a little while, and plan on turning it into a multi-chapter fic when I have time.
Six years ago.
“Don’t cry, Marinette,” Adrien said, brushing back her bangs to see her wiping away her tears. “I’ll be gone for a long time, but I promise I’ll keep in touch.”
“I know I shouldn’t be crying. I mean, with everything you’re going through, I should be the one comforting you, but I’m going to miss you so much!" Marinette threw her arms around Adrien and cried into his shoulder. She couldn’t seem to stop.
"I’ll come back for you,” Adrien said, rubbing her back. “And when I do, we can be together forever. We’ll even get married."
Marinette giggled through her tears. "You’ve been watching too many movies, Adrien.”
“Adrien,” M. Agreste’s assistant called from the car, “It’s time to leave now. Your father is waiting.”
Marinette reluctantly let go of her best friend. “Email me when you get there.”
Adrien, feeling bold at the prospect of missing her, kissed her on the cheek before turning away. He glanced back over his shoulder and gave her a sad smile. “I’m going to keep my promise.”
Marinette grinned. “Take care of yourself.”
