M is for Midnight

Here's another drabble.  I wanted to capture some of the excitement of young love and the anticipation that comes along with it.  Enjoy!



Midnight

Miles was shocked by the note in his locker.

Meet me at midnight under the oak tree in the park and say you’ll be mine.

The note wasn’t signed.  As he navigated the halls between classes, he observed everyone, hoping to catch a fleeting glance, searching for any clue as to who his admirer was.

Hours later, after his parents had gone to bed, Miles slipped out of the house and headed to the park.  The cool evening air couldn’t chill his heated skin.  His heart pounded in his ears as he spotted the silhouette leaning against the tree trunk.

  2. Go Miles! I'm dying to know what happens next and what he feels when he finds out who it is.

  15. Maybe I've seen way too many horror movies but mind immediately takes this to a dark places where something really, really bad happens to Miles.
