We were children of summer, careless and scorching, just like mid-July breeze. In our world lines were meant to be crossed and rules were made to be ignored.

“Will you come back?” Alain, with his usual boldness asked, while you just sat there and watched the ocean. It surprised  me how effortlessly I enjoyed your naked bodies, but how impossibly hard it became to look into your eyes.

Without a word, you ran into the water and we followed you for our last dive, three souls lost in an ocean of love.

And then the world pulled us apart.

  1. I love the sense of mystery and sense which the short flash fictions usually evoke and yet it often leaves me pondering and wanting answers and explanations, such as this one. I gather from the comments this one is set back in the 60s or 70s. I was born just after the moon landing and have some memories of the 70s. However, HIV/AIDS was a huge issue when I was stepping out into the dating world and it definitely made a lot of us more cautious.
    I really enjoyed the mood you created. It feels quite mystical.
