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.

  1. 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.
