The Edge's Serenade

It was that breakup.... between the two people who loved each other too much to let go of.


2. Him

Landon stared out the window at Sidney. She seemed to waiting for something, but she sat herself on the ground, beside all the cars that revved past. She placed her head in her hands and he saw her body shake uncontrollable as her tears collided with the rain.

He rested his forehead on the window pane as his tears formed long marks on the once clear and spotless window. He wondered why he had done it. Why had he let her go? Why did he let her run out the door? He should've stopped her. He should have stood in front of the doorway to prevent her from going. He should've told her what she meant to him, that she was his everything and there was no way that anyone could replace her. She was all he had ever wanted. Now, his whole world was sitting on the sidewalk wondering where to go and he was left wondering why.

Landon saw her stand up and turn around. As their eyes met, Landon remembered the first time he had seen her, at a beautiful beach on his trip to America. She was just as beautiful then as she was standing on the sidewalk in a mess of confusion, anger, hurt.....

She turned around, letting her hair catch the rain as she walked across the road. As she walked away, Landon felt anger build up inside him. Anger at himself. He remembered when he asked her out.


I grabbed my guitar from beside me. I was nervous, what if she rejected me and I was left standing here looking like an idiot? Oh well, it was worth a shot.

I started strumming and sang:

I don't mind spending every day

Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Look for the girl with the broken smile

Ask her if she wants to stay a while

And she will be loved.

~*~*End of flashback*~*~

Now who was standing in the pouring rain? She was. And Landon had done nothing to stop her.

He was going to get her back and tell her he loved her.

He couldn't live with himself knowing he let her walk away.
