•{ The Evening Transition . . .

The sun was slowly giving way to the moon. City lights began to glow and a mist crept into the air. For him, this was the perfect time of day. It was this scene that he planned for his date to witness – even if she didn’t know it yet.

He was leaning against his balcony railing when he heard the doorbell.

“Right on schedule,” he said as he opened the door.

Her smile caused him to smile and she took a few steps inside. “I haven’t been to your place before,” she said, and the way he saw her eyes glancing over things he assumed she was cataloging his items.

“Don’t worry,” he assured her, “we won’t be here long.” He placed a hand on her elbow and ushered her towards the balcony. “There’s something I want to show you.”

A sarcastic remark played on her lips but was quickly forgotten once she stepped outside. The air was cool – but not too cold – and the din of the city below was soft. The air felt different. His apartment was on the 30th floor.

She moved away from him and took in the scene. “Everything looks peaceful from up here,” she remarked.

“Something like this only happens once a day,” he said, coming up behind her. “During that time I let go of any worries from the day as I watch the sky transition into Night.”

She looked thoughtful. Having known him to be insightful from time to time, she also knew that what he said often carried other meanings. She slowly asked, “What are you getting rid of today?”

He was quiet for a moment then raised his arm up to drape it around her. “Everything I don’t need.”

•{ Snowfall . . .

She leaned back and let out a sigh, tipping her face upwards to the lightly falling snow. Next to her he shifted, adjusting his position. “Uncomfortable?” She asked..

“No,” came his short reply.

“You hesitated. You are uncomfortable, aren’t you?”

He plucked a few snowflakes off the knees of his pants. “It’s starting to snow.”

Spreading her hands she laughed. “Look around you, its snowed and we’re sitting in the snow -“

“On a blanket.”

Instead of rolling her eyes she only grinned and pushed back into his side. “Just enjoy it, COLD!” While she was talking he had taken his hand and slipped it under her coat. She was warm and his hand was not.

He grinned from ear to ear, reveling in his small victory. “What is that you were saying?”

Now she shivered, but if he thought she was going to cave and want to go inside he better think again. Besides, after the initial shock died down she was fine. “I told you to wear gloves.”

•{ No reply . . .

She glanced down at her phone. Again. She had checked it so many times in the past few hours that she had lost count. While various notifications would pop up here and there, they were never the one she was waiting for. To say she was anxious was an understatement.

There was work that needed to be done – deadlines that were creeping up – but she couldn’t focus on any of it. Every time the phone lit with a notification she felt her breath catch. And every time it wasn’t what she wanted her heart sank. While she waited she had sent out messages of her own through various channels all for the sake of getting a reply. No response. She sighed, loud and deep.

“Please respond,” she pleaded to her phone. “I need to know you’re okay . . .”

•{ On the bridge, waiting . . .

From here she could hear the sounds of the city easing from workday to evening. The hurried bustle turned to anticipation and the chatter of work was exchanged for that of drinks and party plans. Even the buzz in the air had its own shift. Perhaps it wasn’t something everyone could feel but she could, and standing against the railings on the highest bridge in the city, she could see the change as well.

She watched street lights begin to come on and dinner lights glow in the windows of local restaurants as a way to lure in customers. It all made her smile. However, she wasn’t at this point to simply watch others but she was waiting for her companion of the evening. She had told him where she would be and in the fading light of day the green on her dress stood out. It was his favorite color.

Her watching was one-directional, and therefore flawed. While she was busy looking right, she didn’t notice that he was coming up on her left . . .

•{ After the party . . .

The last few days had been one social gathering after the other. When one party ended another was about to begin. She wasn’t a party girl – or one for multiple social engagements – but these were invites that could not be refused.

Now they were finally at an end. It was the last party and the last guest had finally left. For the first time in days there was quiet. She sighed deeply and slouched down. After all this, she was more than ready for a vacation from the holidays.

•{ Summer’s End . . .

“So that’s it,” Summer said softly as she walked about her garden of flowers. “My reign is ending.”

She knew it was coming. It happened every year. This was the natural order of things. She had felt her abilities growing weaker as the days went on. The Sun was losing the warmth that came with its shine and, in return, the Moon had been getting colder and bolder as it took over more hours.

Summer yawned and sat down among a flowerbed. It wouldn’t be long now before she fell into her Seasonal Slumber. She reached out and let her fingertips dance along the edges of the flowers. Though her powers in the mortal realm were near their end, In her garden they survived. It is here where she rested and regained her strength until it was time for her to awaken again.

“It was a glorious season, wasn’t it.” She stated to the flowers as she laid down in the grass. “Full of color and light. Next year we shall do it all again.” The warmth of the garden washed over her and Summer closed her eyes. Moments later she was asleep and would only waken again at the end of Spring’s reign.

•{ Elevator Call . . .

As soon was walking to the elevator that’s when my phone rang. The ringtone told me it was you. It wasn’t a normal phone call, but a FaceTime call.

I rolled my eyes as I pulled out my phone and pressed the button for the elevator. I tried to hide my grin, but it came through anyway. Your face filled my screen as soon as I answered. You were already smiling in the coy way that you have. “You couldn’t wait to see me?” I said, feeling the smile pulling at my cheeks. “I’m just getting in the elevator.”

You almost laughed. I saw you holding it back. “What? What’s funny?” I asked. You didn’t answer. You just kept looking at me with that laugh behind your lips. Then I started laughing too. That’s when you finally spoke.

“I always want my girl to smile.” You said. It was so corny. So you. I laughed as I hung up phone. A moment later the elevator reached your floor.

•{ The Barbershop . . .

There’s a barbershop right down the street where, I’ve heard it said, the Past comes to meet. It’s not a place of glitz or flare, and people sit in vintage chairs. Though there’s always something for  you to find , it’s people that are kind.

So if you got some time to spare, or need to do something with your hair, I recommend going there . . .

•{ Window Seat . . .

I don’t have anything fancy to say this time around. Sometimes that happens. I’ve had a lot going on recently – even took a few weeks away from blogging due to having surgery. Thankfully, it all went well.

Now I’m in a state of recovery, and it’s not as easy as people would have you believe. Some days are good. Others? Not quite so much, but it’s all a process.

So this is what I have today. No matter what happens, nothing is going to keep this girl down.
