the promise

Her hair was piled up silky and dark. It spilled over her shoulders. Her red lips curled like flame and her mouth hinted at the promise of more than words. I glanced at her eyes. They were like wet jewels. Her walk was a mockery itself… I looked away lest I succumb to her charms. I pushed hard with my foot and my skateboard moved me past her on the sidewalk and rapidly away from my weakness. Further down the street, a boarded-up house greeted my roving eyes.

The sun-baked, curling edge of a pool slide jutted above the concrete edge of the property. It was a beacon. Salvation found within. I hopped the wall. It was perfection. It glittered like a thieves dreams. It was a Blue Haven. It offered up endless possibilities and promise. The Blue Haven lady would take only what I could give and never concerned herself with trivialities and always needing more.  Decision? I hesitated not one moment. I plunged right in. A perfect marriage. Thanks to Brandon Wong for everything. Skate- Ozzie
