TIME

Short Story #16

Pepeย thinks he will have plenty of time to tell Jezelle he may be interested in more than just friendship. He believed that they were soulmatesย and that their fate was written in the stars.

Then suddenly, time seems to be slipping away from his fingers because he is standing in front of well-wishers as a best man at Jezelleโ€™s wedding. It seems completely unreal and he distinctly thinks if only he didnโ€™t leave to further his studies in Switzerland to become a better person and to earn wealth. If only he only had more time to tell her his feelings, then she wouldnโ€™t have been getting married to his best friend today.

When the priest asks if anyone objects to the union and to โ€œspeak now or forever hold your peace,โ€ Pepe looks at the bride and she looks at him, a fleeting moment passing between them. He doesnโ€™t object and when the couple kisses and became a new union, his heart sinks and shatter quite unexpectedly.

I didn’t know what I was going to write today until I was going through the Ideas folder on my pen drive. I came across this title and immediately thought of Depeche Mode’s ‘It’s No Good’ and viola! I had my Sunday short! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m going to take my time
I have all the time in the world
To make you mine
It is written in the stars above
The godsย decree
You’ll be right here by my side
Right next to me
You can run, but you cannot hide

Don’t say you want me
Don’t say you need me
Don’t say you love me
It’s understood
Don’t say you’re happy
Out there without me
I know you can’t be
’cause it’s no good
