It’s clear. Jeremy needs to forgive - Annie needs to forget.
A promise is made. A tragedy occurs. A second honeymoon is disrupted. A chance encounter brings David Andrews back into Annie’s life.
Annie is determined to remain faithful. She’s made a promise she intends to keep - Jeremy’s Promise.

"Are you okay?" he asked. Before I could reassure him once more that I was fine, the stewardess started the safety demonstration. I directed my attention to her, happy for the diversion. Jeremy and I had spent most of the day before in small talk and sightseeing, intentionally avoiding the issues we faced. He was so relieved that I was staying with him that he made a Herculean effort not to upset me. And later, I had to admit, that night had been sweet and intimate. But sitting on the plane, I couldn't forget David's kiss or his haunting blue eyes. I couldn't forget the look of devastation on his face when he said goodbye at the elevator.
"Go home, Annie," he had said. And I was. I was going home, hoping that Jeremy and I could rebuild what I had destroyed.
I needed to reach out to Jeremy, reassure him. I needed him to know I still loved him and was committed to our marriage. When the stewardess finished talking, I turned to him and gently laid my hand on his cheek.
"Thank you," I said just above a whisper. He looked back in surprise.
"Thank you ... for what?"
"For coming to get me."
Instantly his eyes filled with tears.
