Drabble #50

Wow! I'm halfway done with this challenge! (On the down side, boo! Summer is half over!)

Prompt: Treasure

Each moment of my life is priceless. If you miss one, if you forget, if you’re too busy, there’s nothing you can do to make up for it. I’m going to be present if you’re there or not, because I’m not going to miss out just because you can’t be bothered to be around. And you can’t just atone for your mistakes, because these moments don’t have tangible value. You can’t just do something else, or buy me gifts, to make up for what you did (or didn’t do, as the case may be). I take comfort in my abandonment by realizing you’re the one who’s really missing out.
