FFfAW – Heartbreak

Margie stared into her half empty glass as tears trickled down her cheek. The jukebox was playing “Unchained Melody,” and she thought of Bobby and how he had left her for another girl.

The alcohol was suppose to medicate her and make her feel better but it was only making her feel worse. She had come to the pier to enjoy the evening and forget about Bobby. Unfortunately, neither had worked.

As she drank her drink and cried her tears, she saw a girl and boy holding each other out on the pier and she felt her heart break again.

FFfAW – Will You Marry Me?

“I can't marry you right now,” I told David after he asked me the question. He didn't say a word, he just got up and left, leaving me alone and confused.

He didn't say where he was going and I had made up my mind that I would find him. I drove all over town as my eyes fogged up from the tears.

My heart was broken. Maybe I was too hasty in my decision. After all, I can't imagine spending the rest of my life with anyone but David. He didn't understand that my first marriage didn't end so well, leaving me shy from marrying again.

I have made up my mind. I will keep looking until I find him and tell him that I would marry him after all. I can see clearly now.

FFfAW – Sunday Drive

My husband and I decided to take a country drive one weekend. We wanted to see all the farms in the area and just enjoy a Sunday outing.

We saw many beautiful farmhouses and this one in particular was my favorite. The fog has settled peacefully on the field waiting for the sun to burst into a spectacular sunshiny day.

The drive was peaceful and relaxing and we enjoyed seeing all the gorgeous farms, deep down wishing we could own one.

Who knows? Maybe one day our dreams will come true.

FFfAW – What Job?

It was just a figurine – a figurine of a dog with a hat on. But there was something creepy about this dog and I couldn't put my finger on it until I saw it laughing one day. I jumped and screamed!

Suddenly, my boss walked in and started laughing, “I see you met my little dog, Roddy.”

“What the hell,” I said, “That little figurine started laughing at me!”

Chills started going up and down my spine. “This isn't right,” I croaked, “Figurines aren't suppose to come to life.”

“Well, Roddy isn't just any figurine. He can become very lively.”

Just about that time, Roddy started barking and I ran like hell.

I really didn't want that damn job anyway.

FFfAW – The Cruise

My wife and I have been saving for a cruise for years. We were determined to go on a cruise in 5 years so we scrimped and saved until we finally had enough.

A week before we left I became very ill and would have to postpone my side of the trip. I didn't want my wife to miss out on something she had looked forward to for 5 years. I convinced her she should go without me.

I had mixed feelings when I saw her off. I felt sad for me but happy for her. I already miss her.

FFfAW – The Empty Bench

Julie and I came to this bench in the park almost every warm Sunday during our 48 year marriage. I have a lot of fond memories here. We would bring a sack lunch and after we ate we would feed the birds and enjoy being outdoors and being together.

Julie became sick and we found out it was an aggressive cancer. She died six months later.

I continued coming to this park and would remember my beautiful wife, Julie.

Then I became sick with cancer and I died ten months later.

Now, Julie and I are together again…

FFfAW – Dream Vacation

I was over the moon! Finally, I was on my dream vacation to China. A place I wanted to visit all my life.

My first order of business was to go shopping. So many fabulous bargains can be found in China.

I walked into the shoe store and two gentlemen came over to assist me immediately. They were dressed very well and both were so nice! In fact, they even talked to me in English. I was so surprised!

I asked to try on a pair of red high heels and they immediately brought me the shoes to try on. When I put them on my feet I felt like I was in another world. A world I have never been in before.

Suddenly, the shoes became glass slippers. One of the men turned into a prince and the other man turned into a mouse dressed as a coachman. What is this? I was in the Cinderella fairytale!

I quickly took off the shoes and ran out the door!

Fairy tales belong in story books.
