PROMISES KEPT




We were to meet here at the clock tower in three years.

Young Love… Or so we thought?

We had promised!

Neither of us were ready to give up our dreams.  So, it was either live with possible regrets… or release each other in hopes that…

****

The clock struck 3pm. That was the promised time.

****

It was then that I spied you. But you were walking hand in hand with another? He was pushing a twin baby stroller. Not the promise I had expected!

There was another …?

Why would you bring another?

She was a beauty!



Written for The Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge (LATE! But I enjoy them, so I try to keep up anyway!)

Requirements: October 14, 2015 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that reveals or explores a moment of serendipity. How did it come about? What did it lead to? You can express a character’s view of the moment or on serendipity in general. Use the element of surprise or show how it is unexpected or accidentally good.

For those of you who recognize, serendipity has been a prompt before. What can I say, but I like its magic! And it is never the same gift.
