What If...

So yesterday I told you what I've been up to in the last eight months. But really, let's face it. My life is BORING (yup all caps boring). My routine is as followins:
  • Wake up, go to work
  • Eat breakfast
  • Work some more
  • Eat lunch
  • Work some more
  • Go home
  • Eat dinner
  • Check Facebook (yup I am addicted to Facebook games)
  • Go to bed
  • Repeat
So I believe "BORING" sums it all up nicely.

Since I'm boring, I've decided to think about what it would be like if my life were a romance novel. So taking a few facts and twisting a few truths, here what it would be... (I'm not much of a writer and really this is my first attempt at writing any story, but here it goes)

Aymless left work early to make her court date. She was dreading it, since she had no memory of the events that led to this day and didn't know what the possible consequences would be. As she made her way timidly up the stairs into the court house, she saw him. He was six-feet tall with stunning deep blue eyes, black hair and with an athletic build dressed in an Indiana Highway Patrol uniform. And he was looking straight at her. Men like him never look at her with that intensity. She discreetly glanced behind her to see who he was really looking at. There was no one.

As she approached to door, he opened it and said hello. Startled, she returned his greeting without meeting his eyes.

"You don't remember me, do you?", he said.

"Excuse me?", replied Aymless.

With a crooked grin and a twinkle in his eye, he replied, "I'm Kyle Long."

Oh, my. Thought Aymless, as she recognized the name. It was the name on of the officer on the ticket!

After an awkward pause, Aymless gave him a weak smile and moved into the courthouse and down the hall toward the courtroom. Kyle followed.

"Can I have a minute?" he asked. Aymless nodded. "I'm glad to see that you are looking better. I just wanted to tell you that you can ask for a deferral. It allows you to clear this off your record. Just ask the DA for deferral."

Aymless thanked him and briskly moved into the courtroom. Being unused to such attention from strangers, especially good looking men, she was unsure as to how to take it. Once in the courtroom, she looked around wildly, still a bit flustered from her encounter with Officer Long.

Kindly, older gentleman noticed her distraction. After finding out what she was there for, he directed her to the DA who was sitting at a table near to front of the courtroom. She got in line to speak with him. When it was her turn, she asked him about the deferral process. After explaining what it was, he gave her the appropriate paperwork to fill out.

Aymless filled out the paperwork and gave it to the court clerk. With a huge sigh of relief, she turn and left the courtroom. And ran right into Officer Long.
And the romance starts...

I figure the DA will also be yummy and I'll end up having to decide between the two. *sigh* And somehow, I'll get over my relationship-phobia and live happily ever after with one (or both) of them. *grin*

Not bad Amyless. I like the patrol officers name...Long...kinda makes ya wonder!!! It's a good solid beginning to a story that would interest me enough to seek out the book. So is there going to be a book?

By the way, you only live once so grab on with both hands and enjoy!

Lea said...

LOL Amyless, I wouldn't mind a little "Officer Long" in my life these days either.

Your description gives an excellent visual. BTW ;)

You have a good day.

Renee said...

Oh, priceless, Amyless!

And, talk about the story you can tell your grandchildren about how you met their grandpa! A story for the ages.

Shaymless Aymless said...

Jessica: So true. I'll take both. ^_^ Been tossing around writing. so maybe there will be a book in the future somewhere.

Lea: Thanks.

Renee: Grandchildren implies there would be children *shivers* children frankly scare me.

Tracy said...

Well first of all we need to fix things in your life and add READING in there. Yes, READING with all caps. lol That will definitely make life more interesting right there.

Your story – that was great. I can hardly wait to see what happens next in the Kyle Long saga. :)

KT Grant said...

As soon as I read that I thought...hmmmm! And I love his description - yummy!

Shaymless Aymless said...

Tracy: Yup, need to do more reading. I seem to still do the buying but some how it stuck with "I have nothin' to read" *sigh*

KB: I know. I can find time to play silly games on line but not read a whole lot. *sigh* I need to straighten up my priorities (my TBR bookcase scares me, it LOOMS).

Orannia: yes and its all a fantasy. My friend tells me that he was nothing to come back and take a second glance at. Alas. Aymless is Loveless in Indiana. ^_~
