Mellifluous

Mellifluous

  1. sweet or musical; pleasant to hear

It was a typical Sunday morning as I sat outside and listened to the birds chirp their songs and the gentle breeze of fresh morning air pass on by. I pulled out my notebook and wrote poetry of these simple, yet beautiful things happening around me when my phone rang. Without hesitation I let go of my current thought and beautiful surroundings to go answer the phone for I surely knew who it was. As I went towards the phone the sounds of the morning became drowned out by the uproar of the ringing phone on the wall. When I got to the phone, I paused for a second, made a wish and picked up the phone. At first it was silence then her mellifluous voice came over the line.

“Hello, is this James?” She asked hesitantly to make sure she called back the right number.

“Yes, it is! How is it going Sarah?” I responded with a slight twinge of nervousness to my voice.

“Pretty good, James. You call?” She said sounding more pleasant than ever.

“Yeah, I did.” I said slowly to avoid the upcoming conversation I have spent the entire week dreading and planning out everything I was going to say.

“What’cha need?”

“Okay, here is my chance. It is either make it or break it. You got this, no need to be nervous!” I thought to myself as the silence on the line began to build.

“James?”

“Uhh, yeah. I was wondering if you would… like to go on a date with me to the local diner down the street from us.” I said hesitantly.

Silence.

For a moment I was torn between two dimensions: one where she says yes, we date, become more than friends and see where things go each of us content with not letting this moment slip; the other where she says no and I would always wonder what could’ve came if I waited just a bit longer, tried just a bit harder or just been a bit better.

“Yes.” Her mellifluous voice floods the line, my racing heart is calmed and my destiny is chosen: I for one couldn’t be happier.
