A Breakfast of Illusions


"I got a feeling that you are going to miss me," Max told Suki. Suki was sitting on a bench facing the tracks, eating a bowl of cereal. She had been hungry and this was the first quiet stop in a little while to grab something nourishing.

"You're not going anywhere are you?" Suki asked back. "Aren't you?"

"Well, just in case something happens and we get separated," Max said, beside her on the bench. He butted out a cigarette and leaned back. "You know this journey we are on can't last forever."

Suki paused for a long while; a single tear streaked down her face, seeming more foreign than ever. "What do you mean?"

"Someday this will end," said Max. He took his thumb and wiped the tear from her face. "Life will continue and so will we."

Suki added, "I never really thought that it would eventually end. I always thought we'd be doing this forever."

"Forever is such along time," Max said. 

"Yeah, but can't I just live the fantasy for now?" Suki said. She placed the cereal carton into the trash bin.

Max let out a chuckle, and then he turned to Suki and winked, "But we are having a kick-ass time doing so!"
