Another piece of 'Paving the way.'

Disaster snarled as it looked down on Danielle. Fuelled by hatred, it was forced to take a step back, and its assignment to destroy her life was now put on hold. At one point, certain that its crowning glory was at hand, it stood tall ready to claim it. Using all of its power to drag her down in to the depths of hopelessness, its attack was suddenly disarmed when a tower of strength rose up out of the blue, and proceeded to steal its glory. Totally unprepared for this turnaround, it retreated back in defeat, but all was not lost. Deciding to use another strategy, it waited patiently on the side lines, and when the time was right, it was ready to strike.

Excerpt from 'Paving the way.'

The afternoon came and went, and the coolness of the evening air was a sure sign that the day was coming to a close. Danielle and Mick dined in the restaurant, and after their meal they sat at the bar and talked to Pannos. Mick was his usual comical self, and had them laughing at his silly ways. The room was buzzing with excitement, and Mick silently congratulated himself for having stayed out of trouble. The events of the past twenty four hours had been forgotten, and Pannos was pleased to find that everything had gone back to the way it used to be. Watching Danielle’s’ face light up as she laughed, he longed to have her in his arms again. Then, enchanted by her sparkling green eyes, he suddenly found himself thinking about her children. He knew how important they were to her, and a pain pierced his heart when he thought about her life in England. Knowing that her life had been put on hold to be with him, he envied the fact that they were the vital link to the world she had temporarily left behind. Jealousy played a strong part in his mind as he imagined his life without her. Finding it a struggle to shake off these feelings, he tried to think past the pain, and tried to think of a positive outcome as to why he had met her. A few things came to mind, so following their path he searched for the answer. But they all led to the same conclusion. There was no answer, just a big void. His life was going to be unbearable without her. The result of the situation kick started him back into reality, and he could have cursed himself for letting it get the better of him. ‘No,’ he thought. ‘I will cross that bridge when I come to it. I will concentrate on what we have now.’ These empowering thoughts triggered his need to think only of Danielle’s happiness, and not his own selfish desires of something that was obviously out of his control. So taking charge of his thoughts, he put the smile back on his face, and carried as before.
