Cloud at your feet

Today’s post is the 6th instalment of Ravi’s story. 

The first post was Spread Your Wings .  After I wrote that post, the next two instalments (part 1 and part 2) were what happened the day Ravi left home. 

Ravi left his parents home to go to a new city, a new life, a new job. In the 4th instalment, Cinnamon Buns & Peanut Butter, Ravi discovers the basis for successful relationship. In the 4th instalment, Ravi realizes that A kiss will tell

If you are just visiting, please enjoy the story from the beginning, Spread Your Wings Ravi.                                   Thanks for coming along. ♥ – David

Heart beating fast and his mouth dry, Ravi hesitated outside Marie’s bookstore.

When two people left the store, he took a big breath and walked in.

Mmmm patchouli, and he reminded himself to breathe.

Marie’s face lit up in surprise and happiness when she spotted him and she lightly flew through the book stacks to hug him tightly.

PB, I was just thinking of you and I …”

Ravi never let her finish, he leaned in and planted his lips lightly against hers. For just two heartbeats……. then Marie’s hands pushed him backwards gently.


Ravi mumbled “I thought …

I just needed to take a breath PB, you caught me off guard.  Now get back here  and let’s try again my dearie.”

This time Ravi’s eyes were closed long enough he forgot that he was even standing.

All his awareness was in CB’s lips and his hands on her back, and the happiness he felt bursting inside.

After a few seconds but seemed longer, they leaned back and their eyes were twinkling at each other.

I have to work now PB, so scoot! ” Marie planted a soft kiss on his nose, and smiled.

Marie blew him one more kiss as he closed the door and he grabbed it on the way out, smiling from ear to ear.




When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
That’s amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You’re in love
When you walk down in a dream but you know you’re not
Dreaming signore
‘Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
That’s amore

Ravi had nearly walked a block before he realized he was going the opposite direction than going home.

Ravi’s face was beaming, and he was smiling like he had a secret he was dying to tell.

Unable to stop himself, he spun around around on the sidewalk, lifting his hands over his head and dancing back and forth like a boxer who had just won his bout.

Wahoo !  That’s Amore !
