J and M...by Michael

A Story by Michael Reisman

Judith looked to the left of the campfire grounds she used to go to. A place her parents took her to on many summer vacations while growing up as a kid. The now forty year old walked in that direction to a wooded area she had hiked in before. Judith paused for a moment and then was drawn to a particular tree. J & M forever was carved in the bark which reminded of that special event some time ago when she was only fourteen years old. Her finger traced the heart around the initials that were once carved by her first true love. Michael looked to the left of the campfire grounds he used to go.

It was one year later that Judith and Michael went on their honeymoon together. In a nearby wooded area he took out his pocket knife and continued where history had left off so many years ago. Two smiles with tears and hugs included finished off a chapter in a romance to be continued.

I get your idea here of the two of them revisiting the tree with the initials. I don't think repeating the wording 'looked to the left etc' really works and i think the possibility of them being coming together after so long is unlikely. I find the ending a bit confusing - you say the romance is to be continued, but after their honeymoon. Is your final sentence to be continued? I think you could come up with a more likely and subtle idea for the two to get back together.
You have the basis of a good story here!

Alan

thank goodness for happy endings
this is a lovely story and i like that it comes back full circle to the place where love sparked, the beginning is marked and they return to leave their mark again, almost as if saying to anyone who happens past - hey, look at us, we're still together, it was real

This is a very interesting short story. I really liked the beginning and I thought it was very interesting that both of them had been on summer vacations at the same campfire grounds. I really liked the ending as well. It sort of leaves me hungry for more. I would like to commend you on your creativity. Keep up the good work and good luck in your future endeavors. I look forward to reading more works by you in the future.
