The crystalline patterns of sugar that would form on top of the raspberry jam we spread on bread on Sundays that you always said reminded you of snow and I always said reminded me of the thin crust of sugar on top of the jam? The long drive home as we whispered along the words to every Queen song on the CD, and how you took the long route home so we could finish the disk? The smell of cigarettes that pervaded the apartment building until the vampires who lived next to us finally faded into the dusk like their smoke? (it was blueberry, not raspberry) The tangled webs we spun? The mattress of sand that engulfed us as we lay in the sun and you didn't even wear sunscreen but I slathered myself because you like to live life on the edge and I like my life wrapped in a neat little package of yellow WARNING tape? And the little markings you left in the sand as you walked even though you told me you tried not to because you didn't like to leave signs that you were there, but everyone could tell you were because afterwards your feet were dusted with sand? The wild game of Scrabble that lasted from six o'clock till four in the morning, and the sleep-deprived words we ended up concocting through our unrelenting need for caffeine and possibly each other? (smaradg is a word) The tear-stained windows which originally let in a steady stream of light and then became clouded, murky, gauzy, finally so opaque glazed with water that we could see nothing through the glass but the faint glow of spring in the distance but only at three o'clock? The tiny bean sprouts you planted that died within two days or maybe three, and how I laughed and you pretended to laugh along? The tens of thousands of times you told me that squirrels run faster in the winter and how I laughed every time and then we watched the squirrel in the backyard but that squirrel was limping so we still don't know and I told that joke about squirrels not having feelings because they eat our tomatoes? (they were alfalfa, not bean sprouts) may/Jun 2014 iStoCk Thank you to all who entered our seventh annual Creative Minds Imagine Fiction Contest!
