This was my golden opportunity…
Good morning…it’s as simple at that.
I stood at a crossroads not sure where to go. Two paths to choose from and I needed conflict. Who knew I’d find conflict in the simple words good morning. As soon as I wrote it I knew I had a choice but it never occurred to me until the words were on paper.—There it was, clear as a bell—my conflict. I just had to use it.
Who should say good morning, I asked myself.
Who? Brian or Chase? Brian or Chase? Brian or Chase and then I just wrote it.
“Good morning,” Alyssa jumped when she heard his voice and looked up quickly.
“Who else would it be?” He said jingling his keys.
“Me,” Alyssa looked over in time to see Brian come out of her bedroom shirtless and still in her sweats.
“Brian!” Alyssa froze not sure what to do. The three of them stared at each other. Brian being the only one completely unconcerned with the other two and Alyssa certainly being the most uncomfortable.
“I see,” said Chase. “It’s not like that…” he repeated Alyssa words from the night before as he glanced from her to Brian.
“Since you get the picture you can have this back.” Brian tossed him the diamond ring Alyssa had left on the nightstand.
“Brian!” Alyssa gasped.
“Wow—“ Chase said. “Pure class,” He looked at Alyssa and gave her a sad smile. “That is pure class Miss. Parker.” He turned and walked away.
KER POW! I got my conflict.
