THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 148

For You

My heart pounded so hard
I could barely breathe.
I was afraid the black envelope
would be soaked through
with my nervous sweat
before I could even give it to Gary.
I saw him in the hall,
and I felt like I was walking
through water.
It took so long to get to him.
He saw me, stopped, and time
went back to its normal progression.
“For you,” I said
and handed him the envelope.
He grinned and all my anxiety disappeared.
“Rose petals?” he asked.
“Something better,” I said.
“Smile,” he said,
and I did.
“That’s much better,” he said.
