One True Love

Post by Scattercat » Sat Sep 10, 2011 12:53 pm

"I'd like a chance to be happy," I told the Lord of Love.

"What?" He rummaged in his box, pulling out slips of paper and muttering. His voice was muffled. He sounded distracted. "You already had it. Fluttering stomach, sweaty palms, music playing. Your fault if you missed it."

"But..."

He poked his head up. "Don't tell me you bought that 'relationships are a process' mumbo jumbo. It's one magic ticket and then poof. That was my plan."

"There can't be much happiness around, in that case."

He grinned. I felt my stomach lurch. "No," he said. "No, there isn't."

If it helps, this was intended as sort of dark humor/sarcasm. On the other hand, I asked my wife to marry me after less than two weeks, and it wasn't really up in the air before then, so who knows?
