Blue, Blue Eyes

“Can I buy you a drink?”

Surrounding admirers parted and drifted away. His strong, broad shoulders loomed above me. Dark curls brushed my cheek as he bent his handsome face to mine. He smiled. And I fell in love with his blue, blue eyes.

“Hold onto me, sweetheart. Don’t let me go.”

Exhilaration as we slid down the waterfall into the cold stream below. He kissed me below the water. A soft, gentle kiss. His strong arms held me close to his hard young body. That boyish grin, those dark brown curls clinging to his handsome face, and those blue eyes that crinkled at the corners.

“You look beautiful.”

Well, he looked damn good too, though I was too shy to say. My white gown brushed against the grass. His hand guided me firmly through the throng. Delighted laughter erupted as he cupped my face and kissed me till I couldn’t breathe, and his smiling, blue eyes were for me alone.

“Breathe, sweetheart.”

Pain stilled my breath, but he held my hand. Grey flecked those brown, cropped curls. Fear, rigorously repressed, escaped from those blue eyes. A cry. That first, sweet cry. His blue eyes smiled. Lots of crinkles now.

“You look beautiful.”

Another white gown, another young bride. Pride misted those blue eyes. Brown flecked amongst the grey curls. His tummy touched mine as we hugged.

“Time to do whatever you want – you lucky bastard!”

Sleeping in late on a Monday. So much grey, so few curls. The remains of a picnic lunch scattered around us as we lay together on the grass on a Tuesday. He cupped my face, and kissed me.  His blue eyes smiled into mine.

“I’m sorry, so sorry. If there’s anything we can do…”

Their kindness forced me not to scream. The door closed and I sank to the floor. Beside me lay the scattered memories I’d found. The tears fell at last. I closed my eyes and ached for strong, strong arms and blue, blue eyes.
