Love Lost

Written by Linda James. Posted in Blog

Love Lost

She becomes aware of a presence. Gently replacing the telephone handset she turns to see him standing in the doorway.

“Oh, you’re early. Its only 2pm” she says without looking at her watch.

He stands motionless.

Absent mindedly she slowly moves the white porcelain figurine on the oak cabinet as if to give the display of china a more orderly appearance. Then, moves it back to its original position.

Would you like a cup of tea?

“I’m leaving” he says.

Her eyes wander to his hand expecting to see the worn briefcase that had stood on the hall table every morning for the past twenty years. Instead, he's clutching the brown leather suitcase that reminisces of young lovers, exotic locations, dull meetings and dozens of identical airports. 

She stares at him.

“I’m in love with Margaret.”

She hears words but her mind struggles to make sense of them, frozen on “I’m in love.”

Then he is gone.

Drawing her awareness back from the empty doorway, she picks up the phone and dials. “Darling, I’m ready. I’ll ring a taxi now.”

She open the closet door and takes out her neatly packed suitcase.

Climbing into the waiting taxi her body starts to tremble. A solitary tear running down her right cheek is quick brushed away.  Her emotions dancing with sadness, with joy, and, longing.  She laughs out aloud as she gasps:  “Who would have believed it”

The driver watches through the rear view mirror. After years of driving through the streets of London he no longer cared or shared or talked. He just drove.

“Driver, airport please.”
