Sitting there in the café, raspberry mocha and pastry between us, I meet your eyes. The food looks delicious, I’m sure, but it’s not why we’re really here.
Utensils clatter onto plates like memories.
“I did it all for you.”
“I know.” You reach across the table to take my hand.
Forever seems like a long time, but it’s not long enough to share all the moments I want to share. It’s no more or less than breaths in and out, than the distance until-
Our fingers meet and twine together.
Thanks Rochelle for yet another inspiring prompt – and a profoundly touching story this week.

I hope it works out well for them
Even forever’s not long enough when you’re in love 🙂
A lovely sense of romance and longing.
I wonder what the “it” is that he or she did
Probably too much for words. 🙂 Thanks, Neil.
Poignant and romantic. I’m wondering what is about to be said. Something important I gather.
After 51 years, Terry and I can enjoy wordless communication. We really did do it all for each other.
Thank you so much Linda. I believe it.
Awwww, that was just a simply beautiful moment shared. Loved this one.
Reminds me of that scene in the Terminator 2 movie where what’s-his-name tells Sarah Connor, “I came across time for you, Sarah.” (paraphrase) What a cozy intense story you have written.
Thank you so much. I love time travel love stories and that is a good one.
You’re very welcome.
Hubby and I have shared 54 years, those moments of entwined fingers endure, and we did thngs for each other and still do.
Romantic simplicity, deep inferences
Thank you so much. And congratulations.
A very tender moment. Lovely story!
Touching moment. I like the reference to their memories.
Ooooooo I’m hooked. Something is about to be said. Great tension in this. Well done
