Magpie Tales-Rendezvous

Magpie  Tales 2
Vienna was where they met. A warm bar on a cold, rainy night caught them by surprise and drew them to a place neither one expected. Two weeks later, an hour away she blew out the match, waiting, her cigarette glowing and eyes on the door, hating herself for wanting and waiting for him.


Each Tuesday you too can add a chapter to the Magpie's Tales--stop by here!

OMG, 3 sentences and what a story they tell. Reminds me of the Hemmingway 6 word story.
Very nice indeed!
