She quickly shot back, Do you think of Kimberly every once in a while? And do you wonder what it would have been like if the two of you had decided to pursue a relationship?
Yes,I do. But those thoughts dont occupy every waking moment. Now and then Ill close my eyes and see her on that beach. Sometimes the vision is so strong and clear that I can almost sense her in my arms and feel her lips against mine. There was that electric spark from the moment we met. I guess it happens all the time. I looked at my watch and saw that the time for leaving had arrived.
When we examine others choices, we sometimes see a reflection of our own, she said as she started to get up. Time to be on our way.
Its been a great weekend, Marla, I replied, and as I stood up, she lifted her arms for me to help her up. I took them and slowly pulled her into my arms. It was almost dark and flashing before me was the picture of Kimberly. I held Marla close and ran my fingers through her hair. She smiled and suddenly, without even meaning to, I gently drew her face to mine and kissed her softly on the lips. Her lips parted and for a lingering moment, we stood there, enveloped in a blinding flash of joy.
There! she said as she slowly drew away,that was fantastic. Where did you learn to do that?
I knew that she wasnt upset by what happened. In fact, I felt she knew it would. Didnt really mean to, Marla, I said, I just got carried away.
Dont be silly, John. That was marvelous. Right time, right place, right feelings. A time and place for everything, you know. She hesitated a second then added, You seem somewhat upset. I thought you enjoyed it, too? Whats the matter?
