When pigs fly! When hell freezes over! Is there anything in your life that you are so certain of, you'd say these words? What won't happen, "In a month of Sundays?"
I chose to use "pie in the sky". Click My Sunday Scribblings to read more of my writing. Go to Sunday Scribblings to read what other writer's submitted. This is the story I created:
Waiting for Pie
Cassie leaned on the pole fence looking up into the starry night. "Getting daddy to agree to this marriage is just pie in the sky." she said softly. "Pie in the sky? What do you mean by that?" Joe asked. As he listened to her answer, he mentally traced the line across her brow, down the bridge of her nose, across the cheekbone, down the jawline, and rested on her lips. Those pretty pink lips.
"Why, haven't you heard of pie in the sky? Rev. Ike on the radio talks about it all the time. It's like saying when hell freezes over, or something like that. It's that dream that will probably never happen, at least in this lifetime." She sighed deeply. "My daddy thinks I'm too young to know my heart, and he thinks you're just an over-eager boy with no way of supporting a wife." She giggled quietly, "Joe, are you an over-eager boy?"
Joe looked into her glistening eyes, sheepishly he answered, "Well maybe I'm over-eager, but I'm no boy." She had hit a nerve. He went on, "I'm 21 years old. I'm working six days a week at the Quicky Lube. I can pay my rent and bills, and I still have enough left over to show you a night out on the town." Clenching his jaw, he looked out into the dark North Carolina night. Cassie reached over and placed her hand on his. Hers soft and pale, his strong and bronzed. In almost a whisper, she said, "Pie in the sky is special. It doesn't happen every day, but I'm willing to wait for mine for as long as it takes." "Oh baby, I love you," he groaned, as he pulled her into his arms, "I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make you mine. If that means waiting, then I will wait."
