Flash Fiction

Alone Together

Their eyes met across the classroom.

She, at the front, under the teacher’s nose. He, at the back, by the window.

He grinned at her. She smiled before turning her back.

He watched her ponytail swinging as she wrote. She watched him as he read aloud a Shakespearean quote.

The shrill bell rang, startling them all. Students and teacher, made their way out into the hall.

He dawdled, waiting for her. She picked her bag, sensing him near.

Alone together at long last, he held out his hand; she held on fast.

    This reminds me of my early college years, when I met my future husband of 43 years in a geology classroom. Nice memories!

      Nope, he was a student too. Sitting at the back of the class near the window.

    Such a sweet story. I love it.

    I’ve finally linked up again. I’ve missed it. Must get myself more organised to avoid the FOMO.

    Question: I am unable to copy the html code for the button. Any reason or just my laptop (and its owner) being demented?

      I think it’s on my end with the blog changes or else due to photobucket. Need to change it.
