Saturday Centus He Leaves


Jenny, from "Off on my tangent" is still dreaming of autumn
for our centus today!
Not to exceed 109 words
First Person
Photos - any additional
 our prompt is- "The leaves crunched under my boots until they didn't."

I watched him leave never hearing a word I said.
I cried a thousand tears
as the leaves crunched under my boots until they didn't.

On our wedding day....

I groaned silently behind my wedding party and ignored their banter with a passing Viking fan.
I felt miserable knowing my fidgety nephews waited eagerly.
I noticed my dashing groom flash his hurry-up expression, but I had to find what was stuck in my shoe.
Like always, the best man was eager to console me.
Finally, I realized 
struggling with tears, but weeping more with joy knowing
it had always been our best man - 
that was my best man

Brief and nice take on the prompt, Karen.
I also like your wedding pics. Thanks for sharing your memories.
Your best man forever consoling you, very nice.

first I thought it was sad and then the second part is sweet. I sort of read as two different tale, still very sweet

have a great day.

Karen, leave it to you to come up with something like this. Great photos, too!

Thanks for the link, and I did see the Jeff Daniels clip--very powerful!!

It is the most marvelous moment to realize who you are meant to be with! As so many sad romances go, they often know somethings not right, but often one of them just won't get it, and so they carry on, unhappily.....

Is it you in the blue wedding dress? Very daring and special.

I was so glad for a happy ending. I love a happy ending. I love the way you wrote this - beginning with what appeared to be the end of something, and at the end, turning into a beginning. Your pictures were perfect too. laurie @

Well, that was certainly uplifting. (LOL?) (Hey, I know a little something about depression. For I'm a diehard Cowboys fan, and they're killing me again this season!)
