Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Twelve

“Come for a walk,” Tom said. “Maybe we can sort it out walking.”

But they couldn’t. Ended up silently staring at the ducks in the muddy pond. 

When the old lady slipped into the water Tom sprinted, grasping her wrists in his strong brown hands and hauling her onto the bank.

Much later, Belle found her hand in his as they walked home.

“I learned something today,” he said.

“You did?”

Tom smiled down at her.

“Yup. I learned that I want that with you.”

“What with me?”

“What them two have. Will you marry me?”

“No.”

“Please Belle.”

“Okay…”
