Day 58 ~ One chance

“Thank you John.” Mary smiled.
“For hugging you?” John asked, confused.
“No.” Mary replied, “For giving me this chance, when I wasted all of mine.”
“What did you waste them on?” John questioned.
“Stupidity.” Mary answered vaguely.
“Did you have other lovers or something?” John tried to pry, knowing that it wasn’t any of his business.
Mary looked surprised. “Me? The girl who hates romance? Having other lovers? Have you forgotten who I am?”
“You said it was stupidity. A girl who hates romance that’s dating someone sounds stupid to me.” he explained.
“So all this…” she gestured to nothing in particular, “… is stupid?”
“No. Never.”
“Why ever not?”
“Because a guy who likes romance can always change a girl’s mind.” he quipped, with a straight face.
Mary laughed. “Hmmm. Alright. I see what you mean.”
“Mary, would this be your last chance?” he asked, frowning.
“Maybe…”she wrapped her arms around him. “That’s why… I’m not going to let it go.”
“Neither, Mary. Neither.”
