(Flash fiction inspired by PZ’s picture Scambiando Colore)*

“Drink it,” he says.image

I take the glass from the stem, and I gingerly wrap my fingers around it. The dew condensing on the surface makes me shiver.

“It’s only a sip,” he tries again, and smiles while drinking from his glass.

I raise my eyes to look at him. He is beautiful, and young, and full of promises.

“What you feel now it’s going to last forever; don’t you want to be with me forever?” The final question.

“Well, forever it’s an awful long time to be stuck with you.”

*There are two versions of this flash fiction. The picture inspired me twice; this is the first one.
