The Vow

Daddy, where are you going?

- I'm going to a film with Uncle Jamey.

Can I go?

- Not this time, Johannes. It's not a film for...children.

Oh. What is it called?

- Star Trek.

Oh. Does it have aliens in it?

- Yes. 

- What else does it have?

Maybe some monsters and spaceships. 

If I go potty in the toilet can I come with you?

- Oh buddy.
I said. 

Tear stained cheeks, and 
this film will be bittersweet.

Someday, buddy, I promise: I will watch every single Star Trek movie ever made with you.

I promise.
