UBC17: Whistling

As usual, she was standing by the gate. He walked towards her, trying to whistle nonchalantly sadly only feeble sounds escaped his lips so he stopped. His heart was beating out of his chest but he knew that there could be no one else more perfect for him.

Doubt began creeping in…what if she said no? It was too late to turn back because he had reached her and she’d raised those perfect eyebrows at him quizzically.

“Want to watch a movie with me?”, he stammered.

She smiled shyly. “Alright…”

He grinned and walked away, whistling strongly this time.

    What a great little story in the short word count! I thoroughly enjoyed it. So true that whistling can ease our nervousness or show our joy and contentment. Glad it worked out for him and she said yes.



Would love to hear what you think!
