The One That Got Away
By Sela Ordaz
Let me tell you the story of how I lost the most wonderful human to ever walk the poor lighted streets of my small town.
I knew he was the one the moment I saw him, turning a corner, over at Limon and Rose, strange naming are common in my town, so don’t judge. In any case, he was there just walking, when I saw first his languish frame, then his a-little-too-long-for-my-taste reddish hair, the deep blue “Keep Calm and love red-heads” t-shirt which almost, almost pulled a smile from my lips, warn-out black pants and of course to complete the outfit, deep-blue converses; he looked like he had dropped out of bed, pulled on the first thing he’d found and gone for a stroll on the park, or that’s what I guessed from his slightly tousled hair.
