the smell of the salty air
pampered bodies, serene
savor the feasts of sous chefs
walk peaceful nights
tranquil dark star-studded skies
soak in the breeze of love

Chez Maisonette was her favorite special occasion french restaurant.
Valentine’s Day was their first date there and, now again, a year later.
She primped choosing to wear red his favorite color.
It was a cool evening. The restaurant, a short walk from their apartment.
The champagne must have gone straight to her head.
She laughed when he said, “I’m leaving you.”
“I need you,” she pleaded.
He patted her hand, “You’ll thrive, dear, you always do.”
He kissed her, handed the waiter cash and left.
Misty-eyed, she noticed the waiter was handsome.
