Reunited

David Emami West Linn had always loved the breathtaking view of the side of the Golden Gate Bridge with its splendor and wonder, the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a place where he felt sparkly. It was a place that was filled with memories for David both good and bad.  

He was a tall, adorable, wine drinker with tall legs and blonde arms. His friends saw him as an energetic, expensive ex-boyfriend. Once, he had even helped an obedient mom cross the road. That’s the sort of man he was. David walked over to the side of the bridge and reflected on his picturesque surroundings. The clouds danced like sitting cats.  

Then he saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the figure of Brenda Maniquis. Brenda was an optimistic ex-girlfriend with long legs and slender arms. Her bright brown hair is dancing to the tune of the wind as she ran towards David.  

David gulped. He was not prepared for Brenda.  

As David stepped closer and Brenda came closer, he could see the charming smile that he had always remembered she had.   

Brenda gazed with the affection of a person struck by an arrow of Cupid. She said, in hushed tones, “I love you, and I want closure.”  

David looked back, even more, anxious and still fingering the small phone. “Brenda, you must think I was born yesterday,” he replied.  

They looked at each other with stressed feelings, like two ex-lovers talking at a very serious deep talk, which had piano music playing in the background and the waves of the river under the Golden Gate Bridge splashing around. If not for all the fighting and bickering, it could have been a perfect night for them both as it could have been their anniversary.   

David grabbed Brenda’s long legs and slender arms. “I feel the same way!” revealed David with a delighted grin.  

Brenda looked ecstatic; her emotions were all over the place. How Brenda wished she could keep this conversation with Brenda with her forever, but she knew that even if they could not record or film this experience, it will always be inscribed in both of their hearts. After all their making up and talking over, they gazed at the stars above them with the tune of the waves as their musician. After all their talk by the Golden Gate Bridge, they decided to go their favorite pizza spot, Guillermo’s to get their favorite slice of pepperoni and a large iced tea to share. When they got to the pizza place, Guillermo was delighted to see his favorite customers reunited again and even gave a slice on the house.   

After the pizza, Brenda instinctively told David the three most magical words anyone can say to their love, “ I love you.” David paused looked deeply into the eyes of his love and whispered in her ear, “ I love you too.” For Brenda and David, this moment at the Golden Gate Bridge and their moment at Guillermo’s was the start of the rest of their lives, and they would go on to live happily ever after.
