"Wow Darrel," Mary continued in amazement and beauty of her surroundings. "How did you ever find this? It's so....so romantic here. I bet you've brought a bunch of your girlfriends here?"
I shrugged my shoulders and stood back and watched as Mary took it all in. She was so fun to watch, acting like a kid seeing Santa Claus at the department mall. I sat on my strategically placed log, which allowed me, on a clear evening, to watch the sunset just over the canopy of Red Oaks. Mary would pick up a rock and unsuccessfully try to skip it across the creek.
The creek was overflowing a bit from the rain, and didn't allow for the full area of the creek bed to exist, which, in turn, made it difficult to skip rocks across. I tried to tell Mary this, but she didn't care. She must have thrown twenty rocks. I tried to find her the perfect rock with the flat sides and demonstrated the perfect motion one must have to get the full trajectory of a skipped rock. It didn't matter. Half the time Mary would either heave the rock across the creek or hit the side she was throwing from.
The skies started growing darker and the wind picked up enough to blow Mary's hair in her face. She looked a mess, but she didn't care.
"We should get heading back Mary, it's going to pour pretty soon."
"No, I don't want to leave," Mary said in a begging kind of voice. "It's so beautiful here. Let's stay here until it starts, and then we can head back."
"We'll never make it up the hill Mary," I said while shaking my head admiring her will. "You had a hard enough time getting down it."
"Whatever Darrel," Mary said in a childish way crossing her arms. "I'm not leaving!"
I gave her an "oh well" shoulder shrug and sat back down on my log. Ten minutes later, the wind picked up as the dark clouds that signal a heavy rain appeared overhead. Mary stood on the edge of the water looking straight up into the sky waiting for the rain to pour on her.
Mary was so free here. Free to be whoever she wanted. Free to act however she wanted, and I was witnessing it. The girl who always hid in her shell at school was fully alive at my spot. No one was here to make fun of her. No one was here to give her a look of disgust. No one was here to make her feel less of herself than she probably already felt. Mary was beautiful in her own unique way.
And then it poured. I opened up my umbrella hoping Mary would take cover under it, but she didn't. She continued to throw her hands out wide and take in the coolness of the rain. Her rain soaked hair fell down on her face and her shirt stuck to her skin. Her nipples pierced through her shirt showing what must be a perfect C cup she always kept hidden beneath her over-sized shirts. She was unknowingly baring her stomach that was surprisingly in shape.
Mary brushed her hair back and out of her face making it look like a completely different hair style. She was so beautiful. I would have never guessed this person physically and emotionally was hidden underneath the person I first met in the eighth grade.
My name is Maxim Daniels and I was born and raised in Illinois. I'm married with four beautiful daughters, two dogs and three birds. I'm a social worker by trade and recently gave that up to pursue a different adventure. I've always wanted to write, but never had the push to do it. That all changed about a year ago and now I can't stop writing. I write for fun. I tell stories I want to read and hope others will enjoy reading them too.
I have always loved reading Debbie Macomber and Nicholas Sparks. Their stories are so real and make you fall in love with each of the characters they write about. My favorite book of all time is "Angela's Ashes."
I have two websites that occupy a lot of my time. The first is devoted to books, and you can check it out at fictiononthego.com. My original idea for the website was to post stories in real time, one chapter at a time. I have since decided against doing this for an entire book, and in the future I plan on posting a few chapters before publishing on Kindle. For now, the site is more of an author promotion site, where you can check out the latest and greatest books from other indie authors.
My other site is quickly becoming a full-time job. The site is devoted to independent musicians with a few mainstream music information mixed in. You can check it out at itsallaboutthatmusic.com. The motto for the site is, "some of the greatest music is the music you've never heard of."
