Sentence: She watched him walk slowly down the sidewalk as they parted ways for the night. They both hated this part. Saying good-night was almost the equivalent to good-bye for them. He turned for one last glance and noticed she had that donleamealone look on her face. His eyes filled with tears. He hated that look & it filled his heart with such an unfathomable pain to see. He quickly turned back around and rounded the corner and got in his car. Once inside, he let out a huge sigh and wiped his eyes. "One day", he thought as the engine roared to life, "I won't ever have to see that look again."
