A PAIR OF SILK STOCKINGS PART 6


The play was over, the music ceased, the crowd filed out. It was like a dream ended. People scattered in all directions. Mrs. Sommers went to the corner and waited for the cable car.

A man with keen eyes, who sat opposite to her, seemed to like the study of her small, pale face. It puzzled him to decipher what he saw there. In truth, he saw nothing-unless he were wizard enough to detect a poignant wish, a powerful longing that the cable car would never stop anywhere, but go on and on with her forever


Now wasn't that a lovely story? Thanks for sharing it with me. : ) That lovely painting is "Sweet Memories" by G. Harvey.

I really like what you are doing here. Very poignant episodes. It could be any of us, at any time, couldn't it?

Yes, I think they may be why it appealed to me so much.

It was a lovely, sweet story, Eve. I really enjoyed it. Loved episode 5, below. And the ending is so poignant, as she didn't want the day to come to an end. Thanks for sharing it.
