The Tryst - a short story

The two blond lovers stood at the end of the alley, bathed in the pink glow of the early morning light. They were enjoying their quiet moment together before the day became uncertain and the world became crazy.

Suddenly they were interrupted by a young brunette who appeared quickly and silently taking the lovers by surprise! They were afraid, the brunette was much larger than them and they’d had run-ins with her type before. In an effort to protect his girl, he ran towards the street, she ran in the opposite direction, down the alley in a panic – not knowing what to do or where her partner had gone. Would she ever see him again? They had only known each other for a short while. Her thoughts were interrupted when a grey haired punk jumped down from the fence, intent on chasing her down the alley. He seized the opportunity with pride, his eyes narrowing on his prey, but spun around to see that he too was interrupted by the young brunette and made a swift exit over the fence on the other side of the alley. Foiled again by his mortal enemy!

Meanwhile, the brunette, really too young to realize her full potential, was only curious. She was completely unaware of all the events that had just taken place before her. The others had prejudged her and she didn’t understand why they all ran from her. Fortunately she took none of it to heart and carried on her morning stroll, happily travelling along, enjoying the present moment, glad to be out in the world that was becoming alive with activity on this bright and sunny morning.

You are a wonderful writer with a lovely imagination. What a delightful world you live in. You're special and unusual. At times life might be hard for you because you "don't fit in" but never give in. We need creative people with fresh vision.
