Daydreams of: The Crush

Laughter and music filled the air as good friends talked about the day or laughed at another’s latest great misadventure.  Oblivious to it all, two men sat at the bar.  One took a sip from his mug before turning to his friend.

“That sucks, man.  But you gotta move on.”  He said as he reassuringly put his hand on his friend’s shoulder.

His friend curtly shrugged off the gesture.  “How can I move on, Tom?  She’s everywhere.”

Tom struggled with his comprehension.  “Dude.  You never met her.  You don’t know her.”

“Oh I know her.”  He countered.  “I know a lot about her.”

“Mike!”  Tom exasperated, “You do not know her.  You only know what she allowed you to see.  And that’s it.”

Mike sat up offended by the remark.  “I know her!”  He argued as Tom shook his head and looked into his mug.  “I do!  I know about her trips overseas, her strong connection to her father as a child, her quirky tastes in music.  She puts it all out there.”

Tom argued back.  “She puts it out there in her blog.  It’s an open source media.  She wants to be a famous writer.  She’s not letting you into her secrets.  She let’s you see only what she wants you to see.  She’s a writer!  She’s only showing how well she can write.  You’re filling in the rest with your imagination.”

“That’s enough.”  Mike replied.  “She shows you enough to understand the mood she’s in at that moment.  She’s deep.”

“No, This is deep.”  Tom said, “Deep shit if I ever heard it.  You don’t even know her name or what she looks like.  For all you know, she could be eighty years old or our accounting professor.”

Mike beamed at Tom.  “That’s it!   That’s my point.  She’s an enigma!  She’s shy and mysterious.   That’s what makes her sexy.  It’s seductive.”

Tom gave up and took a deep swig from his mug.

“You’re nuts.”  He said.

  1. This was really fun to read! A well played out conversation. I really liked the point about filling out the rest with his imagination – good observation about something we all do & don’t always admit.

  2. This was a great write on the prompt from Trifecta. You led us right up to the last moment before you tossed the prompt word in. I forgot about the prompt on the way, and got into the story. That’s good writing, in my opinion. 😉

  3. Run, Mike, run! Thanks for linking up with Trifecta this week. What a hilarious response to the prompt. She’s an enigma, indeed. I love the story. I think the word “blog” is ridiculous in its own right. To see it plopped in the middle of your post was perfect. Hope to see you back for the weekend prompt.
