A Walk on the BeachA Chapter by Wendy Seames Garner
A walk along the beach, trying to understand.
The setting sun cast shadows upon the lake, shadows that echoed her mood. She couldn't understand why he was leaving. She wanted so badly for him to stay, it had been planned that he would. Didn't he love her...want to be with her? She walked along the beach away from her family, she didn't want them to see her turmoil. Though she tried to stop them, tears escaped, traveling silently down her face.
Did he want to break their engagement? Was he looking for a way out? She waded into the water, ankle deep, feet sinking into the cool sand. She felt mired down in questions, sinking deeper and deeper with every step.
She continued walking, the pleasant fishy smell of the lake all around her. The rhythmic sound of the waves, as they lapped against the shore, worked to sooth her aching heart. Just then, the last rays of the sun seemed to come rushing towards her. Somehow, it brought her hope. Hope that he still loved her, that he was just confused.
