I offer my upturned fists to you. “Left or right? You choose.”

You hesitate and smile, enjoying the game, “Right.”

I uncurl my fist revealing the earring that’s not mine.

Your smile slips, the game changes as recognition reaches your eyes and I watch your mouth begin to lie.

This is not serendipity; the flip of a coin, the turn of a card.

You chose someone else thinking I’d never know;  I’d have played along too if you had chosen the correct hand.

The left hand held a Love Heart sweet saying ‘Mine Forever’. That would have been my choice.

It is a fun read. I enjoyed it so much, Denny. I wish your protagonist choose the left hand to be together forever. Well written.

Looking forward to reading more stories from you, Denny.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
