Imagine Me and You
Again, this is within the same task given a title that we have to roll with (see "Feels Like Home" and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower).
* * *
Imagine Me and You
“Imagine me and you running outside naked.” Swig. The liquid slammed the side of the bottle as the neck hit her lips and the spirits hit her head. I let out an intoxicated giggle as I pictured two inebriated teens gallivanting around the block. Dear Captain Morgan was passed my way.
“Imagine me and you riding on the back of a dinosaur.” Lift, tip, chug. The rusty colored liquid rushed down my throat, stinging my eyes but warming my body. I sat the bottle down and laughed at my own thought. Criss-crossed she sat, or more so swayed, a light-headed buzz overtook my thoughts as I looked her way.
“Imagine me and you in ten years.” She said this with a slight sadness the liquor couldn’t hide.
“Best friends as we’ve always been” This was our last night together before we head out separate ways.
She was so beautiful, even with her hair in a state of disaster but her eyes never ceased to shimmer, even in the dim lighting of my basement, the same basement where we met for “Little Meg” had the chicken pox and poor “Billy Willy” hadn’t gotten them yet.
Eleven hours and forty-seven minutes was too far of a distance to let the night slip away into many others. The bottle was pushed aside, by her or me I can’t recall, such a blur. Soft skin, smooth lips, and a rush of blood to the head…a chance finally grasped.
Now, I know this can be better but again, just a writing task. If I really wanted to improve it I would change probably some sentence structures to make it fit better. Meh, it still got the job done in the end!
