•{ In a book . . .

He was outside, enjoying his coffee, a few cookies, and a book he had found in the attic of their house. It didn’t look like much, but something about it had caught his attention enough to make him pick it up. The book was more interesting than it first seemed, for it was actually an old diary of someone who owned the house well over 80 years ago.

“Ryanna!” He called out to her after having read something particularly interesting. His wife wasn’t too far for she was doing some gardening work. “Ryanna! Come here. You have to take a look at this.”

She put down what she was doing and made her way over. “What is it?” She knelt on the side of his bench and leaned over, supporting herself on his shoulder and reading over it.

He held up the book and she scanned the pages, her eyes growing wider. “Now that, that’s interesting.”

•{ Only one Word . . .

Whole world is watchin’ us now
It’s a little intimidating
Since there’s no way to come down
Let’s give them something amazing
Let’s make them remember
Using one word

. . . Incredible

We even counted us out
We weren’t sure we’d make it
But we’ve learned no matter what they dish out
It’s nothing, we can take it
We’ll go down in history . . .

•{ Our lives could change. . .

The clock struck. It was another hour into the night and the sky was growing darker. She stepped out on her balcony and adjusted the fur shawl on her shoulders while looking out to the cityscape around her. It was a warm night for this time of year and it left the sky slightly overcast. It was, in many ways, a lovely night. Too bad she wasn’t able to enjoy it for what it was.

All Pretty like the sun, you burn it up, you burn me up
All ashes I become, I’m all swept up
All spaces in between, you fill me up, you fill me up
And as the night falls low, away we go.

She checked her phone for the third time tonight to see if there was a reply to the message she had sent the other day. Of course there wasn’t. There wouldn’t be. She shouldn’t expect there to be and yet . . she did. He said he would meet her tonight and, despite everything, she choose to believe it. That was a couple days ago. There hasn’t been a word from him since. With a sigh she leaned against the balcony doors.

All pretty like the scars, we both have ours, its who we are
Oh show me everything, where your going, where you been
All time its not too late, I’m standing here, the world can wait
And as the night falls low, away we go . . .

What she didn’t know was that he was there. At the time he had told her he would arrive at her place. But he wasn’t at her place. Not really. He was across the street at the park, leaning half hidden behind a lamppost. From there he could look straight up to her window. He saw her looking for him. Perhaps he was a coward and maybe even a bigger fool for hiding out after he had been the one to set up the meeting.

His phone vibrated in his hand and it was her. Of course it was her. “You gave me everything you had, “ he said to himself as he watched the phone ring. “Gave me your life, I couldn’t give you my heart. You said our lives could change.” It stopped ringing and he slipped the phone in his pocket, turned and walked away. “But our lives can’t change.”

(Inspired by the song, “Pretty like the sun” by Prime Circle)

•{ Pretty Can’t See . . .

And he said, ‘Pretty Baby you’re so special to me. With my eyes how I wish you could see, the visage of your majesty. Pretty Baby please come onto me. Can’t you see it’s our destiny.”

Words like honey with a touch that was warm, can cloud the mind like a mid-summer storm.

Striving to see with eyes that aren’t yours. The failure of it keeps making you unsure. And every day he’s there knocking on your door saying, “Pretty Baby, you’re more beautiful than before.”

So you close you eyes, you’re blind and cannot see through the many layers of past insecurity. Knowing deep down that it could never be that the ‘Pretty Baby’ he speaks of is me . . .

•{ Let’s Play a Game . . .

It was getting late in the evening and he had had a long day at work. The stressed of it followed him all the way home. A turn of the key and he opened the door to his apartment and stepped in. It was dark inside.

“I’m home,” he called out off-handily as he locked the door and tossed his jacket and bag to the corner. He headed for the kitchen to see what she left him to eat. “What’s for din….” His own words caught when he turned the corner and saw her sitting there on the floor, dressed in a lingerie piece he hadn’t seen before, with the game ‘Twister’ before her. “ …ner.” Right now he was interested in a different type of meal.

She wore a coy smile on her face and her finger flicked the game’s spinner. “I thought we could play a game . . .” she said, her eyes watching him as he began to circle around her. He loosened his tie and began to take off his shirt. “You do like games, don’t you?”

He kneeled behind her, his mind a puzzle undone by the sight of her. His body leaned forward – it was almost like he was on auto-pilot. First, his hips met hers. Then, his chest met her shoulders and each time the image became sharper in his mind. His arm went around her and brushed against the back of her head – it was that which made her turn in his direction. Taking the chance he pulled his tie over her eyes. There was no objection.

She spoke playfully, with a strong hint of laughter in her voice. “You know, I haven’t played Twister in a long time, but I don’t remember it playing out like this.”

He slid his hand across her face, and abruptly drove it down, past her jaw. He closed it off around her neck, his fingertips melting into her skin. He leaned against her and he moved his head to the side of hers. His lips conquered by a large grin made room for his words to push out of his throat in a joking tone, laced with a suggestive hint.
“Well, looks like we’re going to have to play out our own Twister, then.”

•{ Elevator wall . . .

The show had been amazing. The dinner afterwards was exquisite. It would have been – if they had been pay attention. They wanted to, really they did because they had been looking forward to this night for weeks. Though when the night was over, and they entered into the elevator that would lead up to their apartment, they were free to do whatever they wanted.
