Fiction: Strangers (226 words)

30 Jun

“Do you remember when we were strangers?” Elijah asked, running his fingers through Lucinda’s hair.

Lucinda turn slightly on the couch to look up at him.  “Why? Do you want to go back to that time?” She asked skeptically.

“No, no of course not,” Elijah laughed, “I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I never want us to be strangers again.”

“Good,” Lucinda smiled, snuggling back into her fiancée’s side. “Then, why do you ask?”

“I was just remembering it.  When I didn’t know you, when I was worrying about if I would ever fall in love, when I was wondering if anyone would ever love me.  Wasn’t that a dark time?” Elijah ran his fingers through her hair again, then leaned down to kiss her on the temple.

“I guess I didn’t spend that much time thinking about it,” Lucinda leaned her head against his lips, making the kiss last a little bit longer.  “I mean, I guess I wondered if I would get married, but I didn’t really worry about falling in love, or the lack there of.  It just—“ Lucinda gave a little shrug, running out of words to say.  “But, I don’t want to go back to when we strangers.  Just because I didn’t know what I was missing, doesn’t mean I want to be back there anymore.”
