Parting of the Ways

By Scott L Vannatter

155 words – @SVBookman

Siang stood contemplatively looking at the velvety carpet of grass beneath his bare feet.  To a casual passerby Siang would have appeared as a statue, his form unmoving in the light breeze.  However, Siang was, instead, meditating over a puzzle which had real consequences for him.

He thought back two years when he had delivered a package to the local market.  He had given the owner, Mr. Mako, the offering and waited.  As he stood there, Siang noticed movement in the far corner of the store.  His eyes landed on Mayon, daughter of the owner.

Since seeing her, Siang had not slept well nor been able to concentrate.  Now, he found out Mayon was leaving the area in two days’ time.  Siang had been thinking.

Realizing that he had to find out what might happen, Siang folded his outer monk’s tunic and walked quietly into the unknown to tell Mayon of his love for her.
