Charmed

highway

“Wooooooooooooohoooooooooooo!”  Kathryn yelled into the wind as she stood up out of the open sunroof.  Pete accelerated over the bridge as Kathryn took in the view of the river below.

She collapsed into her seat and turned up the stereo, which was blasting Third Eye Blind.  She and Peter both sang along at the top of their lungs between spurts of laughter.  Semi-Charmed Life was the theme of their high school prom.  An event that they’d missed since Kathryn had been in the hospital giving birth to their son.   They’d just dropped Colby off at college and discovered they had no idea what they wanted to do with the rest of their lives.

“Where to next, gorgeous?”  Peter asked as he exited the bridge.

“Hmmm…a great dinner…”

“Sounds good…”

“Then dancing all night…a greasy breakfast at a diner and then…”

“Watching the sun rise over the ocean?”

Kathryn smiled at him.  “You know me so well.”

“Let’s do it!”

They sped up the coast, towards the sunset.
