THE DATE

The weather matched her mood.  She was stuck here in this dingy motel room looking out into the wet night waiting for his car to appear. 

He was late, again.  Melissa turned back and surveyed the double bed, the bedside lamp on the MDF two-drawer cabinet, one worn brocaded chair, a tiny kettle and a few sachets of tea and coffee on the stand by the door. 

The rat-a-tat-tat knock came.  Melissa opened the door where Richard stood, a smile on his face as he handed her a bedraggled bouquet of flowers, obviously the last bunch in the service station.

  1. How sweet that Richard showed up with a bunch of flowers! (Even if they were bedraggled). I have a feeling she is just glad that he showed up! Great story Sally!

    Richard has some 'slainin' to do. Cute.

  5. How much can you really expect when your get-togethers happen in a dingy motel room? Obviously all he can afford are the service station flowers...

  6. Sounds like an affair with a married man. Time to move on, and away, far, far away from this man! LOL
    Really well done!

  7. A very sweet story, that feels bittersweet in the lackluster setting. The first line is just perfect.
