When two become one.

She had thought about and imagined this moment for years, but she’d never expected things to go quite the way they did.
The day had started so well, the sun was shining and everything was ready. Her dress hung on the rail above the window, majestic and serene. She knew she’d look beautiful.
Applying her makeup with extra care, adding the final touches of quality but subtle jewelry, she was ready to make her grand entrance.

She heard her name and turned to see her best friend hurrying up the corridor.
‘Don’t go out there Libby,’ she said. ‘He’s not coming.’
‘How do you know?’ she asked quietly.
Her friend passed her a note.
He said he was sorry, but he couldn’t go through with it and wished her luck.
Libby looked at her friend, stood tall and ripped the note in two.
Her friend didn’t understand. They had planned this audition to the last detail but Libby didn’t seem fazed by it at all.
‘I’ll go it alone,’ she said, and with that she walked gracefully out of the dressing room and towards the stage where her solo future waited.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    A different ending than I was expecting. Nice twist. And good for Libby. I hope her solo career was a smashing success.
