A Hallmark Moment
“Do you ever regret it? Marrying him so young?”
“No. I got to finish school even though we married. That was thanks to the military, but still. There are a lot of young wives who can’t say that. And I love him, so that’s a bonus.”
“Well, I knew that part. I just wondered if you ever wish you had waited to get married. You know, had time to play the field a little before settling down.”
“No, I really don’t. Honestly. I think the moment I met him, looking sharp in that ROTC uniform, I knew it was forever. I don’t think I could have played the field even if I’d had the opportunity. He captured my heart with ‘Hello’.” A dreamy look developed on her face. Fallon knew that look well. She smiled.
“Ah, Martin! Martin, Martin, Martin. If only I had known the trouble you’d be, I’d have done everything in my power to keep Kate away from you!” Fallon’s head shifted from side to side, her fiery crown settling in soft curls along her jawline. Her words ended in a higher pitch, something she did when she was laughing.
“You would not!!” Kate’s hand flicked out and slapped the air, feigning shock. “You still would have played the cupid card and set us up. You know it, too.”
“Oh, I know. I just miss the moments we never had together after he came into our lives.”
“Hahahaha! ‘The moments we never had’? Haha. You should start writing Hallmark cards with those lines. You’re almost as bad as Martin.”
This week’s assignment was to show a relationship between two characters, fiction or real, through dialogue in 300 words or less. This is a 264 word snippet from my NaNo.
Did it work? Concrit welcome.
