The sun is shining vividly, making the small park appear even more inviting with intensified colours and enlightend shades. 27 degrees though has probably discouraged the winter-liking type of person.
So probably the three people inside the park are each more of a summer-fan…
An old woman enjoyed the steady warmth of the air while knitting a red sweater. She feels absolutely relaxed and happy. On the contrary the brown haired man who walks across the small cobbled place with a woman, hands entwined. The woman’s facial expression is invisible for the old lady from this angle but she can see the man’s face clearly.
Then suddely she heard loud sobbing…
„What is this? Why is he crying. Did they just broke up. Oh dear, did they break up?! I hope not. They just seemed so cute together. But then agin, it would be the young woman crying. It is usually the man who is breaking hearts, isn’t it? Maybe there’s another problem. Or would she be comforting him if they just broke up?“
„Oh my! I didn’t mean this to turn out this way. Why can’t I just shut the hell up for once in my life?! I do always make things worse than they already are. What do I do know? What do I do? Ahhhhhh! I suck at comforting other people – even with my own lover I can’t seem to bring anyone happiness! What the hell am I doing wrong?!“
„I am so stupid. How could I have done this to my wife? How could I have done this to my children? I love her but I also love my wife. I am horrbile. If only my wife has had more time for me. I would have never felt so attracted to the sweet temptation of her soft lips her charming character and her oout-going nature! It is all my fault. I am going to lose her! I am goiing to lose both! And I am going to lose my children! Why? Why? Why am I such a horrible person?! Why couldn’t I have been strong enough to help my family through this crissi instead of making it worse? None of them did derseve this. None of them. It is not their fault. I am never gonna be able to fix this. If I could take it all back I would! No matter what the cost.“
„Why did I say that she would never find out?“
„Poor man. He just seems not to be able to stop crying. I wonder what is wrong. Maybe someone precious to him got hurt or died? I hope not. That would be horrible. But by now I am fairly certain they didn’t break up. In fact, they seem really close to me.“
„“I am so damn stupid. I should have known he would feel responsible for my fault. Never, never, never should I have had to tempt him to join me that evening. He told me he was married! How could I!“
„How could I just fail them all?“
The man is still crying yet thexy continued their track through the park towards the entrance. The woman still holding his hands tightly, not letting go. The old woman haven’t moved an inch the whole time but has stopped knitting only sitting on the bench, observing the whole scene in front of her…
„Oh dear,… I hope they are going to be alright….“
Okay I would have liked not to be given a scene as concrete as this one to write – but I did write it because I decided to take part in this challenge and to take every assignment and twist the best I can.
