FFfAW-Sunday Meetings

Forty years ago we were sweethearts but the war split us apart. Our lives went into different directions. We both fell in love and married others.

Fate brought us together again, at this park. We were so happy to find each other again, we decided to meet here every Sunday.

We simply enjoy each other's company and chat about our spouses, our children and our grandchildren.

One Sunday, he didn't show up and I knew there would only be one reason why.

Again, we meet every Sunday at our favorite bench.

Every Sunday, he hovers there and waits.

    • Sweet and sad! I know of real life sweethearts who met after years but since both are now married, and not yet old, she wasn’t sure she should continue to see him or not. My friend thought it would not be considered simple friendship by the society so she gave up on him. Probably here their life partners too may not have liked their old time friendship. I too had asked my friend that such sweet feelings anyway makes them more than friends, so where do their marriage partners stand in all this?
      At least sweet-hearts in your story made a success of true love.

  1. Aww. ‘KILIG’ this is PJ. It is touching how these two had remained friends after 40 long years. I’ve heard quite a lot of time that once you love a person, he/she will have a special place in your heart. Maybe why these two remained close after four decades. It is quite sad that he died, but again, death isn’t the end. ❀ Lovely story, PJ. Creepy yet kilig! ❀

  2. Aw, I love the comments Yinglan. After many years, though separated married their loved evolved into a beautiful friendship. I love this story Pj. Sad, but I guess it happens with war.

  3. Awwee I love how their friendship remained strong throughout the years and even though one of them is already dead, you can feel that he is never really gone. Such a great story PJ. Full of love… ❀ ❀ ❀

  4. This is a real sweet story of an everlasting love/friendship. Even though they lead their own lives, they were able to share the joy of sharing experiences and once again have a close relationship. Sad that he passed, but even then they would not let it get in the way of their deep relationship for each other.

  5. Bittersweet – Sentimental, sweet, and sadness all are the emotions in this piece. Sadly, this is the reality for some…. but the happy part is this is a nice literary piece

  6. Lovely story, PJ, and how interesting that you have a ghost in it. It seems our minds headed in similar directions. Perhaps it’s the bench that inspires ghostly thoughts. πŸ™‚

  7. Just saw it ! Thanks PJ for writing on it . I always feel a bundle of stories an empty bench must have seen and I always wish they end up happily….

I would love to read your thoughts...
