September Prompt - What are Your Dreams  
I was listening, honestly I was. The speaker discussing transmigration was phenomenal. But I kept letting my thoughts drift back to Michael. I had long ago stopped dreaming of the imminent future. I say imminent because of course it is going to happen, but what part of that future will I be? I am thankful for every day that I wake up, my limbs tangled with Michaels, the soft gentle sound of him breathing the only thing I hear, the first thing I hear every morning. But I still wanted to dream.

“Life is a journey.
Death is a return to earth.
The universe is like an inn.
The passing years are like dust.

Regard this phantom world
As a star at dawn, a bubble in a stream,
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp - a phantom - and a dream.”

I heard what he was saying, I knew what he was saying at this point. But how can you not want to be a part of someone you love’s life. At this point, my dreams had been rekindled. Michael had relit the fire of my dreams. They were a tad different than everyone else’s. Of course, I wished that I could be in attendance at our 50th anniversary, give Michael a present that would last forever on his 60th birthday. As Buddha says, I was reminded by our speaker, if we were to light a succession of candles from one they would all be a different flame, but still casually connected to the master flame. My wish now is to be a flame that carries on through Michael’s life. I was not arrogant enough to believe that I had reached the enlightenment that leads to nirvana. Instead, I was dreaming of reincarnation that still let me be connected to the man I love. And I fully believed, when I allowed myself to dream, that the universe would align just right for this to be possible. To be there to see the smile that crosses his lips when JR leaves for her first prom, to see the pride in his eyes as Hunter walks down the aisle. And, as we filed out of the temple I thought, I know I will be there. One way or another.

I glanced from my watch to the casserole that was almost finished and sighed softly. I can’t believe I forgot the honey. And without it the golden tofu casserole wasn’t going to be the same. I glanced over my shoulder at Hunter bounding down the stairs. “Dude, when’s dinner,” his face screwed up slightly as he looked at the dish on the counter.

“Well, if I can convince you to head to the store for me, it will be done shortly.”

“If I go to the store, can I not eat that…” he waved his hand, his lip snarled up a bit. “…stuff?”

“Hunter, I thought you said you would eat the golden tofu casserole I said I was going to make.”

“No way, dude. I said you could make it. I never said I would eat it.”

“Eat what?” Michael asked, as he entered the kitchen, his lips on mine before I could respond.

“Golden tofu casserole.” I said, a smile on my lips.

“Oh,” Michael said, feigned a smile. He thought I couldn’t tell the difference between his real smile and this one, I always could.

“I need honey though, before it is a finished master piece.”

“Master piece of gag.” Hunter mumbled under his breath.

“Hunter and I will head to the store for you,” Michael said, perhaps a bit too quickly.

“Oh maaaaaaan.”

Michael shot him a look and kissed me again, quickly. “We’ll be back shortly?”

“Don’t take too long!” I yelled after the both of them.

Half an hour later, I was sitting at the table when they returned. “You two were gone a long time,” I said suspiciously.

“There was a long line, old dude. You have no idea.”

I glanced from Hunter to Michael, looking at the shared looks between the two. I handed Hunter a napkin and stood up, pulling Michael into my arms quickly. “Hi,” he stammered out softly before I dipped my head down to kiss him.

“Ew, come on…are you serious? Before dinner?”

“After dinner,” I said laughing to myself as Michael pulled back from the kiss. “And use the napkin to wipe the pizza sauce from your chin.”

He turned towards Michael, his mouth open. “You let me walk in with pizza sauce on my face? Seriously!?”

“Here’s your honey … honey?” Michael said chewing on his bottom lip and holding out a bottle.

“It tastes like pepperoni. Am I right?” I watched Michael nod. “The least you two could have done was brought home some veggie lover pizza for me!”

“Told you so!” Hunter yelled out over his shoulder, heading for the front door. “You owe me twenty bucks, Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.”

He returned moments later with the pizza box in one hand and a smile covering his face. “Dinner is served, dudes.”

Post away, my dear. No problems. I'm glad you liked it.

I have room for one more ten minute deadline prompt if you have one more in your head, then I have to force myself to bed or I will never get up due to the cold medication and the 6 am alarm.

Thank you! I will link it to my LJ tomorrow :O) Awesome! Hahahaha OK one more prompt before I go to bed so when I wake up tomorrow I have something to read. Ahm,

HOMEWORK!

I apparently ADORE Hunter....

You're welcome.

I think you might have to wait until tomorrow evening (or maybe late afternoon) to read the homework. I'm a slacker. And my dog insists the last ten minutes before bed be for him to go outside, not me writing. hehe. and he can't be trusted alone. He's a lot like Hunter. ;)
