Alone with the Dead. Could you kill a loved one to keep a promise to them?

Hi this is George Cook and I would like to introduce my latest short story, Alone with the Dead.

This story ask a very simple question. Could you keep a promise to a loved one even if it involved killing them. Could you keep that promise whether they were alive or dead?

Here's an excerpt from the very beginning of Alone with the Dead:

John’s hands shook violently as he sat alone in the corner of the dark room. He tried to stop them. He tried to wipe of the blood on them with his shirt. It just wouldn’t seem to go away no matter how hard he wiped.

He mumbled constantly to himself as tears poured from his eyes. He had told his family that it would be alright. He had told them that they could make it across the street to the car if they all stayed together and moved quickly.

He was wrong.
