Almost Perfect!

PHOTO PROMPT – © Jennifer Pendergast
A perfect day I had planned when he asked me to meet up across the lake, by the cycle stand.

A boat ride, followed by snacks and lots of ‘you and I’ time.

Sunny day welcomed me outside; fluttering heart soared to the clouds.

Over a cup of tea, he planned to pour his heart out; say the lovely words drowning out the crowd.
The sun fooled around with the clouds probably hinting a devious trap.

Alas!  Deaf heart dancing to its own thumping score stopped beating only when he asked, “I like your sister; can you arrange a meeting?”

    1. Never had that chance, dear. As it is, the fault is probably in the fact that I have no other female sibling around! ;)
      Glad you found it interesting!

  2. This must have happened so many times when such an arrangement is planned only to disappoint the go-between. I loved it.

  4. Dear Ira,

    Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. How disappointing for your MC. Nicely done.

    Shalom,

  5. Sister, friend, whatever. If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with. (Stephen Stills, I think)

    1. Unlike my other posts, this did not end on a happy note, at least not on the surface of it! Maybe this would prove better for the future.

  8. I somehow thought that there was something fishy about the situation, perfect example of "too good to be true", and glad it's only fiction :-)

  16. Augh, what a twist. I hope he is completely clueless, else this would be meaner than mean.

    1. He has to be for she has not shown him her true feelings yet, thank God for that!

    1. I know this was sad, but then I have friends who have gone through such ordeal... Maybe she was spared from something others don't know yet! :)
