Saturday, best friends…

Porch-swing

Best Friends

She was about to go in but Jack was coming up the walk so she sat down on the porch swing.  It had been awhile since the last time they were together; a long while because of the harsh words that were said back then.  Her words were harsh, his were soft and gentle, and oh how they hurt.  She had told him being friends was not enough and it hurt too much knowing there would never be more so she wanted him out of her life.  All he said was, “I love you, Lizzie, have since I was five, and always will, nothing will ever change that”, then he left. And now here he is sitting on the swing with her; just sitting, close like the best friends they are and always will be.

  1. It’s sad when what we want we don’t get…or we do but not as what we expected. It’s so hard to let go of expectations especially when we are stubbornly holding on…but I like the ending because she must have let go of her expectations allowing them to sit on the swing together 🙂

  2. Feel like I know Lizzie and Jack. I like how you fleshed it out but still managed to keep it clipped and clean. Need to do more of that myself. Please forgive my absence. Behind on my reading. Teddy called to see how I was…he’s quite a guy.

    1. Hey just visit when you can. I have a hard time keeping up these days. I read but don’t always comment.

      That Teddy! He knows he is to ask before he uses the phone. I have a friend in Ivory Coast when he calls her the dollars add up…international calling is a beast.

    1. Thanks, Judith. It is a challenge not to make up sentences that just go on forever with no thought to grammar…not that I remember much of my grammar lessons.
