Time Stand Still

Phillippe’s blue eyes never waver from me. I listen to him talk in his thick, Spanish accent as we stroll through the crowd. After a month of intimate talks and stolen kisses, time is slipping away.

“What are you thinking?” Phillippe says.

“I’m thinking I’m going to miss this.”

“Then stay.”

“You know I can’t. The boys have already called wanting to know when I’m coming home. I think my mother-in-law is suspicious. It’s been three years since David’s accident, but I think she expects me to mourn forever.”

“Come, let me love you while there’s still time.” Phillippe says.

    1. Rosey thank you. I love yours too. I tried commenting, but it won’t accept my wordpress.(it’s probably something I’m doing wrong) The last two post of yours I’ve read I have liked. You have a great wit that comes through in your stories. 🙂

  1. This is very well told – the strain of obligations we feel to those who have passed contrasted with desire for those with us now… nice work.
