The Gap between Two Thoughts

“Your thoughts are made of electric impulses.  As an idea is about to manifest, electricity in the brain travels down the length of a nerve until it reaches a synapse.  At the synapse, it must jump from one nerve to the next, or the thought you were about to have will evaporate before it can ever form.”

“So, are you free on Mar 3?”

She interrupted my refrain about what happened to me and Blue.  I felt betrayed and self-righteous and I wanted her to see me as the pure one, the  benevolent, abused victim.

Somehow, I managed to pause between thoughts.  I sipped my UCC Americano.

“What’s happening on Mar 3?”

Putting down my cup of coffee delicately, I looked into her eyes.

“I am getting married.”

“Where?  What time?”

A smile.  Mama Marife could see through.
