Horizontal Longings [repost]

Horizon sea sky

She rejoiced at the baubles he gave her, yet she would rather have his kisses.

Christmas morning, she walked to the sea and gazed at the empty horizon, knowing that waiting wasn’t living.

Sure, she was a fine girl and would make someone a great wife, or so her customers kept saying, but instead she was wasting her best years on a pointless dream.

Tired of being a lonely mouse, she decided right then to seek her own adventures.

She pulled out her phone and called the whiskey salesman who liked her.

“Hey, it’s Brandy… wanna get together later?”

  1. Brandy sold her braided chain, the one made of finest silver from the North of Spain, the locket that bears the name of the man she loved to get that whiskey.

  2. Things didn’t work out for Brandy, as she got nothing but pain from her on again and off again relationship and the whiskey salesman eventually Ghosted her.

  4. I always felt bad for Brandy. I think she should become a country musician and become famous for singing songs about how much men suck.
