What better time to post a love story.
Love in the Sand.
With all my ideas geared around children, adventure, drama, and dramatic fiction, my wife loves to read all my work. One day she questioned me on why I haven’t done a romance novel. I gave her a puzzling look, thinking about my many books. Many of them have a romance relationship in them, I said, to which she replied, I mean a love story of two hearts as one, like you and me. Write me a story for us, she said.
I thought about it for a long time, because it really isn’t my genre. I did have an idea for a twilight zone, half-hour show, about a romance that sat in my drawer for many years. So I decided to use that as my theme. The problem I was having was how to write it into a story, and what style to use. I love my wife, and wanted to make this book, Love in the Sand, perfect just for her.
Being that I am not a Harlequin type of writer, I thought I would try a new approach, and a writing style of my very own to get my point across. It proved to be a tricky challenge, pasting it all together. I wanted it to be a narrative straight from the heart to my wife. This took many drafts, and pages upon pages to narrow down my own true feelings onto paper. I know it might seem to float around somewhat, and would be better shown on the silver screen. Hopefully, maybe in the near future.
When I finally finished with the first draft, my wife couldn’t wait to read it, or should I say rip it apart. Much to my surprise, she loved every word, especially, That Damn Hat.
Next week will be closer to Valentine’s Day, and I will give you another love story from my life. Hopefully you will enjoy these and share with your loved ones. Until then, enjoy your week.
While contemplating on what to do next, I felt a presence that told me a heartbreaking love story. His pain and suffering ran a cold chill deep down inside me, and made me realize just what a fool I have been with what I have. Read on to see how it all works out for them both, and see if you can make the connection. Another wonderful book by Rick Kurtis books.
… and the sound of the waves crashed upon the shore, caressing my very soul. The only light came from the full moon rising over the mountain. I felt like swimming out into the ocean until I could swim no longer.
I sat in the sand, and popped open another soda, and a pack of stale cheese crackers. I began to think about my wife being all alone in that motel, but I couldn’t get back even if I wanted to. I felt completely stupid, and totally embarrassed. My wife was right, and I couldn’t even tell her. I placed my head upon my arms resting on my knees, contemplating my life. At that moment, my mind tuned to a noise behind me. I thought I was completely alone on a deserted beach, but apparently, I was wrong about that too.
The hairs of fear crept up on the back of my neck as I heard what I thought to be a cry of a man sobbing faintly behind me. It felt scary, so I cringed, and tried not to move for the longest time, hoping that the stranger would continue on his way, and not notice me sitting on the beach. The crying subsided, but the voice continued. It started out as a murmur and grew louder, as he kneeled down in the sand a few feet away from me.
My curiosity took over in spite of my fear, for his ramblings posed no threat. With my back toward him, I sat in silence just to listen, still hoping that he would go away. He began to speak, clear as a bell.
“Where do I begin? A little sand here, and maybe some more over there. When I was your age, around thirty-five, I thought I had it all. I was young and quite handsome, and at the top in my field. I was recognized as one of the top surgeons in plastic surgery in the state of New York.
You have to understand me, you see, my mother…
…It was time to return to the beach. We were both so happy, and a little tipsy from the wine. I helped her up, and we swaggered to the stop-light to cross. We laughed, and felt so wonderful, full of life. The light changed, and we made our way across. Half-way, she realized that she forgot that Damn Hat. I told her to leave it until later, but she insisted, and ran back to the restaurant while I waited on the opposite side of the street.”…
Love in the Sand is not what it sounds like, and may surprise you. If you adore romance, you will feel his pain, his love, and be left with an overwhelming warmth. Love in the Sand is available on Amazon, and Kindle select. It would make a great gift for someone you love.
