30. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Tuesday, September 30th, 6:00pm
Jeff and Sandi (and everyone on the bus)

 

Jeff: So I’ve been thinking.

Sandi: About what?

Jeff: About where our relationship is going.

Sandi: (looks down at their hands clasped together) Do you think that’s a good idea?

Jeff: Are you happy with it the way it is? All this sneaking around?

Sandi: What is the alternative? Unless I quit my job there’s no way you can go public with the fact that we’re dating.

Jeff: But we’re not doing anything wrong…

Sandi: Your superiors aren’t going to understand that. They’ll see only what’s on the surface.

Jeff: So what if… (gets up and kneels in the aisle beside her, a diamond ring in his hand) What if I asked you to marry me?

Sandi lifts her right hand to her mouth, her left is poised in front of Jeff.

Jeff: Life is much to short to let it pass us by worrying about what other people think. If you’ll say yes it won’t matter what you do. Sandi, I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you do me the great honour of becoming my wife?

Sandi: YES!

Everyone on the bus applauds as they kiss.

 

Next stop: October 1st, 5:00pm

  1. I like the shortness of this piece but the fact that it has that message jammed inside makes it amazing. Life can be short for any of us so caring what other people think is just silly to an extent, am excited to go read more soon.

  2. Hooray for love, and for throwing potentially undue caution to the wind…I’m going to enjoy going backward through these stories, learning about the characters in reverse…
