This a second entry for Ringing on 5 sentence fiction for my hopelessly romantic friend. She didn't like my Undead story. So to keep my No 1 Fan happy, I have written this for her. I hope this is up your street Jan. xxx
A hopeless romantic, Jan’s heart leapt nearly out of her mouth as the church bells rang out; it wasn't anyone she knew getting married but the thought of someone having the best day of their lives thrilled her.
She hurried home and rummaged for the photo albums; her wedding so long ago that digital wasn't even a word let alone a concept.
Turning each delicate page, Jan stared at the familiar faces looking back at her, wide grins, sparkling eyes and dancing hearts which after twenty five years were still dancing to the same tune.
Yes, her husband joked about doing less time for murder and when was he going to be out on parole but that’s what they were- jokes; he was her soul mate, her partner in crime, her best friend and she would never tire of his lame jokes, his face or even his tired whinging when she spent too much money.
The church bells were still ringing and Jan hoped the couple would last longer than Jordan and take their vows seriously but mostly she hoped they married for love like she did twenty five years ago and still feeling it now as strong as ever.
