Seconds

A failed love story that takes place within sixty seconds.

    One second ticked by- you saw me.

    Two seconds- I say hello.

    Ten seconds- We’re holding hands outside the Chinese restaurant.

    Seventeen- You kiss me under the old oak tree.

    Twelve- We spend the day at the beach. You turn bright red under the sun.

    Twenty-one- I meet your parents.

    Thirty-five- We fight, you throw the necklace I bought you for your birthday out the window.

    Forty-two- You’re pregnant

    Fifty-five- I come home drunk

    Sixty- You leave me

The End
