55 flash fiction friday #76: face value


what is, is
"It was a beautiful piece. I nearly cried. And I don't often cry over things like that."

"You realize that I wrote that before I ever met you, right?"

"Of course I do."

"You know... There may come a day that you don't do something new to astonish me.
"But today is not that day."

 Graciously hosted by G-Man.

Note: An actual conversation. Modified slightly to fit in 55 words.

Very sweet - but knowing the writers around any twist could come out of that.

Happy Flash 55 my friend

PattiKen said...

Really nice, Mojo. Very romantic!

A Blogoddess' Tale said...

Other read this and thought beautiful...I read it and thought how tragic. I see a person working hard to push the other away.... first words let the other know there have others before you and the the last say there will be other after you...but you will do for today...

It's all about perspective the pain we view the world from.

Bravo on how you wrote it, even if the message was sad for me.

I just wanna know what the "piece" was. Will you tell?

Robin said...

What IS is that everyone is EXACTLY where they are supposed to be. May your days always be filled with this much joy and wonder in each other.

Chef Kar said...

Living in the "now" moment ~ and that was a good one. Sweet, romantic, touching. But, foreboding as well? Hopefully the expectations weren't set too high for disappointment to be imminent. I liked your "piece" today Mojo ~ got a girl thinking :=)

I'm up:

Friday Flash 55 ~ Silvia's Smile

How true! You are so full of depth. lol

It's important to always remember to look for the small things in the person we are with. We tend to get full of ourselves, get to the business of trying to change the other, but we need to be reminded once in a while of that very precious first part of the relationship when it was all new. Love this 55! Mine is up but it's a different kind of love. Have a great weekend.
