“Living a Loop,” (c) 2018, Pamela Schloesser Canepa

Looking back, he remembered.  He was six, she was eight.  Of course, she’d be older.  They’d followed each other around, their families silently watching, neither approving nor disapproving.  Everyone needs a friend.

Later, when they met, she was a bracelet laden, long-haired young anthropology major who went by the name of Feather.  He was smitten.

He was also subsequently dumped.  Their relationship was a whirlwind just like the whirly-gig of their youth.

Years later, at 29, he couldn’t believe it was her in that hospital bed, gray-haired and tired.

“Feather…”

“Don’t worry.  I’ll be back.”  She smiled.

I am a writer who also teaches reading and writing, currently. In 2016, I self-published an e-book and its sequel, and I am learning the art of self-promotion. I published a full-length time travel novel as of 6/16/17 and its sequel in the summer of 2018. Life is a trip, and writing is the best escape for me!

  1. I enjoyed this story. You conjure up the couple very vividly, so that I want Feather to live, and the narrator to find fulfilment. And yet, your metaphor says, “What goes around, comes around.” I fear there’s not much hope of them ever being a couple again.
