10 Minutes to Decide

With his back turned he looks away from her He depends on his trusty watch and waits Her response will be today, he knows it He hears them talk behind him, which abates What did she say, what was her sure answer His friend said that you may now turn around He begins to turn then she says no wait And back to their discussion they went down Minutes went by then it came upon ten He said he’ll turn around now and visit The women stopped their chatter together And he turned, what’s her answer, what is it?

    I see you like the cliffhangers (do you take pleasure in leaving us hanging, huh?). Lol... good work on the mystery elements. I suppose it depends on who reads it, but I feel like it's some sort of romantic proposition... could really be anything though... cool and unique piece!
