Love Is A Mystery
by Miles H. Rost
He sat at the counter of the diner, waiting for the other customers to leave. He’d be the last customer in there before the sign was flipped closed.
He took his last sip of coffee, when he heard the clicking of heels got closer.
“Miranda, it’s good to hear your shoes again.”
Miranda snorted, as she helped her date from the counter chair.
“No luck finding someone new?” she asked with a sneer
“Nah. Just found myself down here. Waiting for you to come get me.”
She smiled. She didn’t know why, but she just couldn’t give up him up.
Seems like there’s some history there. Nice story.
Some people just can’t keep away from each – no matter how bad they are together! Very nicely woven tale
Maybe it wasn’t quite time for the end. :o)
I liked that she smiled and couldn’t give him up; much better than the usual yellings of “stalker!”
I read this that he was blind. I too liked the last line.
So is she the classic enabler? Good story.
I also assumed he was blind! Their relationship is clearly meant to be.

She snorts and sneers yet always shows up…
Meant to be together as no one else will do…
I liked this story a lot because there’s a bleakness and desperation to it but also a large amount of hope. I actually like it more without the last two sentences (She smiled. She didn’t know why, but she just couldn’t give up him up.) Knowing that she couldn’t give him up gave the flash an end and without it leaves us in a little mystery and that’s what I liked.
