Fall Again

Short Story #17
A Fall Romance

I apologize in advance for the story cover being better than the actual story. Please proceed with caution.

My Love,

I know we’ve been through a lot in the past two years and with us being separated for almost one, it brought me back to where I needed to be. I had the time to cleanse my system and re-purify my soul.

Dari, I know no one is perfect. No, not even I, but I’ve acted the hypocrite with you. For that, I apologize. I am writing this letter to make a promise to you that I am going to try as hard as I can for us this time. Also, it’s Fall.

The trees are shedding their old to make way for the new, the leaves sway, rushing against the many leaves on the floor, the wind blows a burst of fresh cold air, I can smell apple spice bread baking from Mrs. Darcy’s shop down the hill and I know it’s your favorite…You know how Fall makes me sentimental! We first met in the Fall after all! I was biking through the park enjoying God’s grandeur when I almost knocked over a man in uniform! We laughed about it, chatted a bit, and then we went our own way. I did not expect to see you again, but I did, the very next day, at the same spot and what were the odds that you were riding a bike? As leaves softly fell to the ground making a blanket around us, you presented me with a flower and asked me out and of course, my answer was yes.

It didn’t take long for us to confess the most powerful words in the world to each other and we were married by the next Fall.

I hope this letter finds you well and that you’re in good spirits, Dari, for I never want to take our love for granted again. We’ve wasted too much time during this separation. However, if you go back on your promise of waiting for me, I’ll understand.

As long as you’ll have me, I am yours for the long haul.

 

Yours,

Candice

Sergeant Darius reread the letter once again with a goofy grin on his face. You can fall in love twice when second chances won’t leave you alone and he was determined this time to make things work until the rest of their lives. He folded the letter and placed it in the jacket near his heart. He had work to do in winning back his wife’s heart and he knew just the place to start; after all, the bikes were parked in the garage for way too long.

***I was leaning towards a sad story, but there’s just something romantic about Fall! I also admit that I had quite a few story ideas before landing on this one and sticking with it. I wanted to write the story based on a soldier falling in love again with his wife, but I ended up with this cheesy thing.

And Michael Jackson’s ‘Fall Again’ set the mood right. This beautiful song tells the story of my story that I wanted to tell… if that makes sense. 🙂

I wanna spend, time to live in
I wanna fall with you again
Like we did, when we first met
I wanna fall with you again

  1. It sounds like Darius won’t have to try very hard. He already has her heart, but I imagine they will enjoy the journey of falling in love again, and taking the time to pay attention to each other, the way people often only do when they first fall in love. There is a lesson in that. 😉

      1. Short story review: Fall Again written by La Petite Muse

        This was short but moving. Muse did a great job of giving me everything but left me wanting more. A beautiful story based around Sergeant Darious, or Dari as his wife Candence called him. Candence writes her love a touching letter of love and promise. Dari cherishes it, and is determined they will be together.

        All in all it was a great story. I would certainly read other works by this author :):)

        I only rate this 4 cups because I’m selfish and wanted to read more 😉

      2. Haha! You should consider doing reviews! 🙂 but thank you for this lovely review & your kind support as always. As for more, well, I might consider it if the muse is right.

      3. I keep thinking about this and forgetting to suggest it. I’d love to read a review of the Bible from the eyes of Diana. I know it wouldn’t be one you could do in one post. But by chapters, or by books?? If this is something you have done before I started reading your blog, let me know where I can find it.

      4. Did you peek into my blog/writing notebook at some time? I’ve been writing notes to actually share here. I’m starting with Genesis & I hope to have it up soon. Great minds really do think alike, eh?

  2. I actually loved the story. When reading Candice’s letter, I could feel her sincerity. I especially liked the third part with her describing when she first met Darius. I could envision in my mind the scene–the sight and smell of autumn, and it reminded me why I also like this season so much! Keep sharing 🙂

    1. Thank you, Crystal. The third part is the only thing I like about this story. I thought it could’ve been better, but thank you for stopping by to read and comment. I appreciate it. ❤
