Snippet Sunday - Every Mile of the Way (WIP) - 15/06/14



~~~

 
The story so far is, Sadie, born and raised in Australia, found her grandma's diary after her mother's passing. Intrigued by the diary and her mother's German background, she's on her way to Germany to meet her family over there.

David.

My partner of three and bit years. He was the love of my life, or at least so I thought. I was twenty-four when I moved from Tasmania to Sydney. I had applied for a job as an events manager, not believing I’d have a chance. But I got the job. Same day I got the good news, I was so excited I missed the bus. It was pouring rain. And that was when I met David, when he offered me half of his umbrella. Yes, that’s the kind of man he was. Well, I assume still is. Just not with me anymore, but with the other woman. Apparently, the one who’s more organised and more mature than me.
 
Sad.

More so, because I really miss him. I did love him and without wanting to admit it to myself, I still do.
 
 

 
Thank you all for your support and kind comments.
 I do appreciate each single one of them!

  1. I think organised and mature might totally be the kind of superficial things a guy who share umbrellas is looking for.
    I truly hope she finds someone who doesn't put labels on her.

  2. Perhaps Sadie can be comforted by these words:
    "Make the most of your regrets...To regret deeply is to live afresh." Henry David Thoreau
    I look forward to see how Sadie reacts and if she can "live afresh."
    Nice 8!

  6. I think it's natural to idealize the one who got away.
