The One That Got Away

I remember her.

Her Nike store outfit. Shorts. Tee. She was standing at the counter.

I had just finished a long day. I was working construction at the time. Dirty. Grimy.

But she turned to me.

"Hey there's a discount if you say youre a local."

She sat by me. We talked. Non stop for an hour.

She left. Said goodbye. Phone in hand.

I never asked the number. I never tried to follow.

She was beautiful. Her name was Amanda.

That was 15 years ago. I still remember.

the One that got away.
