She Didn’t Say No- Part 3

Vowing to love each other forever, finish school in a few years and begin a life together, we became the hottest unlikely new couple on campus, the studious girl and the BMOC, with school first the priority. We made a promise not to interfere with our different plans because I’d be off to Purdue and he hadn’t solidified his plans yet.
A month later I missed my period, always on time, first I worried and kept it to myself and then frantic, I told him a big fat lie. Crossing my fingers and hoping to die for what I was about to say, I called my dearest love, “I’m sick with the flu and don’t want you to catch it.” By the second late period, I was sure and skipping classes and having someone bring assignments to my apartment, I completed my work. Heartbroken, the practical side of me decided Scott must never know and I couldn’t burden his life, ruin his career with a baby. As for me, I’d go to Buffalo, tell my parents and they’d help me solve the problem.

My Dearest Scott, I’m saying goodbye, not because I want to but because I have to. Our paths are too divergent to survive the long wait until we can be together and you must go your way and I have to go mine.

The letter made no sense; choices made with no guidance; choices that changed our lives forever.

Anatomy of a story. . .

Those of you who know me are aware I sleep write. It’s true. A story comes in the night and in the morning I begin. Lately I’ve rushed in and made hasty starts. After I calm down and rethink the idea, I begin again. And somehow a story reveals itself and builds with characters to love and dislike, and always mindful to use conflict and everything needed to bring a story to life.

She Didn’t Say No, released yesterday, is one of those stories. I thought maybe it would be a long/short story and yet it grew. I had more to reveal about the characters. And when a story is cooked just right with all the flavors stirred in and tasted, this author knows when to write The Beginning. . .Not The End.
