Just one second
“Sometimes you remind me of the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland; you’re always rushing for time and somehow you’re always late”.
She blushed as he teased.
“Well, what was it the Rabbit said? ‘The hurrier I go, the behinder I get’. Often that’s exactly it. And having no sense of direction does not help”.
“You know, life becomes sweeter if we learn to slow down a bit. Not everything needs to happen in a rush”.
She stared at him. She easily lost herself in his presence, drowning in his mesmerising blue-green eyes. He had a way of making her lose track of time; of getting her heart to beat in a different rhythm when she was with him. It didn’t matter what time it was when they were together. And she realised that she wanted him near, often and always. Even if only just for a few minutes.
She smiled as she remembered Alice’s discourse with this very Rabbit:
“How long is forever?”
“Sometimes just one second”.
