One year ago, he thought she was driving herself into the ground, straight to her own death, and he couldn’t watch her do that. One year ago, he walked out of her life. One year ago, she thought she could do it by herself and ended up hanging off a roof, alone. One year ago, he watched his little girl graduate, speaking the words that have always resonated in his heart, while she sat on a lonely swingset thinking about those same echoes. One year ago, she showed up on his doorstep drenched from the pouring rain and the thunder and the storm, while he stood in shock at the woman he never thought he’d see again except maybe as a tragic headline or in the Obituary section of the paper. One year ago, she said she just wanted him and he, well he was more than fine with that. One year ago, Richard Castle and Kate Beckett became Caskett.
