… Leaving in the car 10 minutes later, i looked out to the shops as they passed by, the street lights above flickering across my face as we raced by, i wondered, just wondered, where i was going, and where this would take me…
The radio, murmuring quietly, the soft tones of “Twenty Years” filling the car as we talked quietly, Mel talking about the old days informing me of her initial impressions, the memories created as well as the little things that made the difference to our relationship.
