THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 61

Walking

We walked to the parking lot
where the driver’s ed car usually waited.
I could tell he was keeping his strides shorter than normal,
so I could keep up with him.
He walked right beside me,
his hand swinging by his side.
A daydream grew in my mind.
His hand captured mine,
he threaded his fingers through mine,
and he smiled at me.
I somehow gained the courage to lift my eyes
to his and smile back…

The daydream left my head
when he said,
“So, do you think he’ll let me drive first…
or you?”
You, I hoped.
