I haven’t been very active the last couple weeks, as far as reading other submissions. I’ve been very busy with the A To Z Challenge and a little of this and a little of that. My apologies. I’ll try to be better this week.
Strangers In The Night
“Dearest, come to me tonight at the stroke of 12. Ascend the ivy to my room. I will be waiting with bated breath, my love.”
He ran around town showing the note to everyone he knew and even a few strangers.
He rushed to her as the hour approached.
In the darkness, he found a friend.
“I came to wish you luck,” said he.
Before the ivy, he found another fellow.
“I’m here as a lookout. One can’t be too careful.”
He pulled two off the ivy before ascending himself. To everyone’s surprise, he found his love in another’s embrace.
