“Eye Water to Cry With” (Flash Fiction)… Chapter 1: Mya Monroe

Hello All! It’s Flash Fiction Tuesday!! I’m going to try something new for the next few weeks so let me know what you think. Instead of writing a complete story every other Tuesday I will write a short story, “Eye Water to Cry With”, using four to six 300 word chapters. Chapter 1 is Mya Monroe so let’s just see where this journey takes us because even I don’t know how it will end yet!! 🙂 Enjoy!

Mya folded a piece of paper between her fingers and stared intensely at the number 219 printed on it. Her wide hips sunk into the soft red leather of the back booth and she scrunched her face in the most uninviting way possible. It was an unconscious technique for looking less attractive. With the exception of her job as a tenured business professor at Georgia State, she was much more comfortable flying under the radar and avoiding unnecessary attention. But Jonas, all 6 feet 4 inches of him, was made to be seen. His muscles rippled like silk in an April breeze as he wheeled crates of wine into Lindsey’s.

Lindsey’s was the upscale restaurant where Mya normally met her fiancé, Harold, once a week for lunch. Harold and his father, Dexter Woody, owned several restaurants and event centers in Georgia and Washington, DC. Every Thursday, for the past three months, Jonas delivered Harlem Wines to the Lindsey’s that Harold personally managed in Atlanta. Jonas was blue-collar, country, and rough around the edges but Mya was drawn to his swagger. He walked to the rhythm of smooth jazz and his smile was sexier than polished platinum.

“It seems we have a standing date for Thursdays.” Jonas extended his hand to say hello.

“I guess I just love the view on Thursdays.” Mya wished she had told him about her fiancé instead of openly flirting.

“I know some views that look pretty good on Saturdays too.” He handed her his card.

“How cute, a delivery guy with a business card,” Mya thought.

She stared at her piece of paper again. The 219 made her reevaluate her life and everything she knew and loved. Anxiety clinched her stomach. She slid the card inside her purse just as Harold walked in.

    “…his swagger. He walked to the rhythm of smooth jazz and his smile was sexier than polished platinum.” Great description… I can actually picture him. And he sounds like exactly who I’ve been looking for. 🙂
