Sara wished she was anywhere other than here. The music was too loud, people too drunk, courtyard too crowded. She approached several people to ask the time. Looking up, she saw a woman on a top floor balcony. Oh how Sara wished she could trade places with her.


Sarah leaned against the balcony railing, listening to the party, recalling the laughter of old friends, all gone now. Time will do that, she discovered: catch up to you when you least expect it. Sarah looked down, saw a woman standing apart. Oh how Sarah wished she could trade places with her.

  1. Beautifully done. Loved the perspective from the two women and that they were both named Sara. I felt their sense of longing.
