Meet Hope...

A VIGNETTE FROM 'HOPE' IN THE LIES WE LIVE

     
     Hope shook her head, “It’d been a long time…  Maybe twenty years?  Almost thirty years?”
     “That’s a long time!  That’s incredible you were able to recognize him.”
     “It was,” Hope agreed.  Her fingers were tapping the tabletop again, “Ahh, I think…  I think the last time I saw him, it was the summer after my first year of college – I agreed to meet him for lunch, and of course, it ended up being a huge mistake.”
     “What went wrong?”
     “Oh, what else?  We started snapping at each other over the same old arguments; nothing new.  My mom said we’re probably too much alike, both too stubborn.  That’s rich, coming from her.  Anyway, that’s the last I heard from him,” Hope said, frowning.  “Oh yeah, and how could I forget – he’d had a few too many drinks during lunch and was belligerent and angry.  After that day, I washed my hands of the whole mess.  I decided I didn’t have room in my life for that kind of crap and I moved on.”
