John and Susan (Rough Housing Part 3)
By Teresa Smeigh 2019
John and Susan’s destination was school this morning. Not their favorite place. Neither one is good at school subjects.
They were walking arm in arm as well as they could with John carrying all the books and Susan her tote bag.
Their relationship has been progressing ever since their last argument and that beautiful kiss. John and Susan snuck another kiss whenever possible, and no one else was nearby. The mist was getting thicker as they walked down the road between the trees. They hurried up as they were getting wetter as they lingered in the trees kissing.
Today’s trip to school was no different except for the mist, which was getting heavier and heavier. They figured they ought to hurry up and get in out of the rain, but they were still relatively far from the school. They let go of each other’s arms and started to trot to school.
Susan dropped her tote bag again, spreading her belongings all over the walkway. This time John helped her pick her stuff up as the mist was getting very heavy and their books were also going to get wet. They shared a quick kiss and took off running towards the school.
