Welcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the beautiful Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.
This week, I’m sharing more from my flash fiction series, the love story of Roxanne and Jonathon.
Last Week: I shared the first sign that everything is not as it seems. Today’s tease occurs a few weeks later. They’re officially on the run from the fates. Let’s see what Roxanne thinks of all this running.
They’d been running for weeks, never staying more than a night in one place. The stress of the schedule had worn her out. Jonathon was once again packing their bags. Tonight, they’d start traveling east.
Roxanne looked out the hotel window. The streets were filled with folks enjoying the sunny spring day. A group had gathered around the fountain. They seemed not to have a care in the world.
“Can’t we stay for one more night? We only got to Scotland yesterday.” She ran her finger along the dew on the window.
“It’s too much of a risk. They’ll find us if we linger.”
“Jonathon.” She waited a heartbeat, letting him finish folding one more shirt. Waiting for his attention burned a hole straight through her heart. She wanted to rip the shirt in two. “Jonathon,” she cried out.
He carefully set the shirt in the bag and sat on the edge of the bed. “I’m sorry, honey. I don’t know what else to do. I won’t lose you.”
“If all we do is run, then they’ve already won.” She knelt at his feet and took hold of his hands. “I love you. I want to live my life with you. I want us to live.”
“You’re right.” He stood, took hold of her nape, and pulled her to him.
“Oh.” She pressed her body against him as heat rushed over her.
“Even if we only have one more day together, I want to fill it by looking into your eyes, kissing your sweet lips.” He claimed her mouth, tangled his tongue with hers, and then kissed a trail to her ear. “And feeling your sweet heat gripping me.”
“Oh, Jonathon.” She clung to him.
“Thank you for reminding me our love is now.”
