Watching From a Distance

He knew she was watching him. He could feel her eyes on him as he cut through the water like a knife. She worked there and for weeks, he wanted to talk to her, but his courage always failed him. Besides, he wasn’t sure how he was going to communicate with her.

He swam several more laps and then climbed out. He looked over to where she was. She smiled and he smiled back.  Maybe now?  Maybe not.  Grabbing his towel, he turned and walked away.

She called out to him but he couldn’t hear her. He was stone deaf.

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Maybe someone will let her know that he’s deaf and she will tap him on the shoulder the next time or walk right up to him when he’s looking at her. Or maybe he will work up the courage and make the first move. The possibilities are endless. Thanks 🙂

      Shalom,
      Adele
