waiting on her

    The sun cast an orange glow across the snow-covered field. It looked like a field of fire. There should be heat, but cold is the only thing that penetrates Javier’s parka. Julia had promised him they would meet here ten years ago at this exact time. They had been best friends all through high school. On their senior trip they said they would meet here in ten years time should they ever separate, and loose track of each other. He had loved her ever since they met in freshman English, but never had the guts to ask her out. He preferred the opportunity to be safely by her side as a friend than risk everything by attempting to cross that line.
    In the past ten years since high school, he had kicked himself repeatedly for not asking her out. They went to different colleges, and lost track of each other. He had dated girls through college, but his thoughts always returned to Julia. He would wait for her. He sat down on the edge of the road, wrapped his arms around himself, and thought of her as the sun set in front of him.
