REMEMBER WHEN IT RAINED

They say in every relationship there is always one who loves the other more.

 Max wished she was the one who did.

             “Hey, Maxie, how about we play a lil’ hooky and spend some quality time together?” grinned Alec, wiggling his eyebrows playfully at her. “Just the two of us, whaddya say?”

             “I can’t, Alec,” she rolled her eyes at him. “I’ve got so much work to do. You know that.”

            “How about just coffee?” she whispered.

            He had grinned from ear to ear.  “Coffee’s a start.”

Except, she realized, she had never had time for more than just coffee.

Time was an equalizer. Time was relative. Time was all she ever had.  A minute of pleasure was never enough. In agony, it was unbearable. And yet, it was the same sixty seconds of time. Max wished now that she had taken a minute to make a memory that would have lasted forever. (more…)
