Love in their first apartment…

I am pulling something from my archives to repost and if you haven’t already read it, I hope you enjoy! (If you have already seen it, maybe you could just pretend to like it again?) 🙂


I’m toying with writing some fiction and hey, I’ve known you all of five months now, so I’m feeling more comfortable trying this out and I’d appreciate any and all comments — I love it when you’re all so supportive, but helpful criticism is appreciated, too!

The upstairs of the rentable suburban two-flat was small.  There was just one big bedroom, a kitchen, living room and what you might call a front parlor.  The one bathroom was tiny and had incredibly crazy jungle print wallpaper.  She stared at it, then turned to him with wide eyes.  He pulled her close, rocking her gently in his arms.  “Baby, it’s not so bad, is it?” he asked quietly.  She moved a little in his arms but didn’t answer and his heart dropped.  It was the best place they’d seen, and they really couldn’t afford much else.  He hated that she was upset.

  2. What a sweet story. The end had me smiling. If it is autobiographical then I am happy for the love you have found! Also, I totally get how buying a refrigerator makes you feel grown-up!
