This week’s story from me:

I Only Have Eyes For You

Forty long years and a library’s worth of stories later, here we are again. There’s a band, and they are doing a good job, I’m sure. All I can think as you approach me, as I approach you is this:

Do you still love me? After all that? I see the question echoed in your eyes, and it’s a ridiculous question.

On the stage, the band plays. They watch as, on a mostly-empty floor, the real drama plays out. There, a single couple celebrates their fortieth wedding anniversary.

  1. I love that song. I’m a big fan of Doo-Wop, and that is one of my favorites.

    There must be a lot going on in that library if they each wonder about the other’s feelings after 40 years.

  2. You’ve crafted that story really well, Anne. I especially liked “On the stage, the band plays.” It takes the focus off the couple just for an instant which makes your return to them even more powerful with “They watch as, on a mostly-empty floor, the real drama plays out. There, a single couple celebrates their fortieth wedding anniversary.” Kudos!
