Long Distance Romance

100_7227-1Copyright Rich Voza

The dry heat hit Jo as she exited the plane.

It was four months since their last fervent rendezvous.  Five years of passion.  She was ready to settle here.

The warmth enhanced the fragrance of bougainvillea at the hotel and the lights created a magical feel. Perfect for a proposal!

Tanned and handsome, Flavio was leaning against the bar smiling broadly, chatting to someone concealed by the pillar.

Love and desire filled her soul.  Excitedly, she ran towards him.

Panic on his face.

Confusion across hers.

A leggy blonde wrapped herself over her man.

Matching wedding bands glinted their taunts.

    Ohhhhh, OUCH!!! That hurts big. The phrase in Spanish, “Amor de lejos es de pendejos” (love that is far away is of stupidity) couldn’t be any clearer. But, gee whiz … leading a girl on like that. 😦
