Text Message

When she got the text message, Debby would call David after she read it. It’s been two weeks since she heard from him, a month since Debby saw him. She didn’t want to admit it, but she missed him.

Her smile got wider as she hit the message app. Her eyes lit up like a child’s on Christmas anticipating reading his text.

I want to be more than friends. Call me when you can.

Butterflies filled her stomach with excitement. Pushing the numbers on her phone were never so hard. David picked up on one ring.

“Hi David. I just got your text.”

Debby’s smile slowly turned up side down. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she ended the call.


The moon was almost full, and a warm breeze on the Hawaiian January night as David and Joan recited their vows.
