To Watch The Sunset..by Michael

A Story by Michael Reisman

Forty two year old Wendy suddenly felt like a kid again. It was a flashback of years gone by growing up in Brooklyn, New York. A weekend place that her parents often took her to known as Coney Island. Famous for its fast food and a wide variety of rides to go on. Cotton candy, fries, and cheeseburgers along with roller coasters, spook houses, merry go rounds and other wonderful memories. There was also a special place under the boardwalk where she used to lay on a blanket and watch the waves come in and go out, washing the hot sand in its path. This would be her last stop at the end of the day watching the sunset as she used to do so many years ago. One fond memory however was forgotten as we sometimes block them to avoid what once was. It was triggered suddenly when she noticed two names carved into one of the wooden posts that held up the board walk above. "Wendy & Wally" was still there. A heart surrounding their names. Forty five year old Wally suddenly felt like a kid again. It was a flashback of years gone by growing up in Brooklyn, New York. A weekend place that his parents often took him to known as Coney Island. He went to a special place under the boardwalk just before Wendy was about to leave. Wally noticed the lady staring at the wooden post and approached her. "It's still there", he said with tears in his eyes. She recognized him as sometimes blocked memories surface once again. An outdoor wedding took place one year later. There was just enough time for the bride and groom along with the guests to watch the sunset. Maybe a fork in the road leads to a place where we need to be at the right time. Case in point about a short love story between Wendy and Wally, where we take time once again to watch the sunset....
