A Story in 100 Words #3

Holiday Romance

“Mum, can I have an ice-cream, please? I’ve got enough money,” Michael looked up.
“O.K but be quick,” she replied, “we leave for the airport soon.”

About to lick the large cornet he had just paid for he caught sight of Celeste, the pretty girl he had played with on the beach all week. They didn’t speak the same language but had managed somehow to understand each other.

Impulsively he ran towards her. “Michael,” Celeste smiled brightly, obviously pleased to see him.

Suddenly he kissed her on the cheek and handed her his cornet. “Goodbye” he said sadly, turning away.

    Chance meetings…you can only hope one day you’ll meet again.
    But then will you recognize them after so many years have gone by?
    Nice write.
