Will Love Endure?



It’s the strangest sensation when a guy like me feels sick. Sick and angry. It’s all I can do to keep it together as I pull that idiot from his car.

‘I’m so sorry! I didn’t see her!’

Give me seconds, and I’ll make him sorry. And then I hear her voice. So faint. I drop him to the pavement, shaking.

‘I’m here, Beth….’

I’m at her side in a moment. Blue eyes flicker open. A weak smile touches pale lips.

‘You’ll be okay…’

But I can hear her heart getting weaker.
I love her. There is only one choice.

Mick told us himself that he didn't know what he'd do if Beth was in Josh's place. You've conveyed a very complicated scene in just 100 words, where Mick faces that very question, and chooses the opposite of what he told her he'd do. I love the fact that it's just a sketch--we don't know much about the circumstances, but we don't need to. Really nicely done, Terri!

Mick said he didn't know what he would do, but when faced with it in actuality I'm sure he didn't hesitate at all. For him, there really is only one choice.

Nicely done! :thumbs:

You did a fantastic job of setting an entire scene in just a few words. :notworthy:

Mick may not have known before what he would do, but now that he is actually in this situation, things are different.

Thank you, Terri! :flowers:

Thank you for reading ladies!! My reason for this response was in the title itself... ( Cheating a little I know... :brow: ) But when I remembered what he'd said, about his own choice for Beth... it made me wonder if it would really happen that way, and how Beth would feel about the aftermath... Will love endure...? Hmmm only time will tell.... :chin: :ghug:
