FFfAW – Forever Lovers

Randall and Susie were boyfriend and girlfriend. Susie loved going with Randall in his car where they would stop at a local drive-in and get a Coke and fries. Next they would go out to the woods and park where they would smooch for an hour before he had to take her back home.

One day Randall and Susie left to go get a Coke and fries but they never came home. Their parents, friends, and police led an all out search for them for seven days but neither they nor their bodies were ever found…

Until fifty years later. The old rusted car was found among overgrown plant growth with two skeletons in the front seat holding hands. They are forever lovers.

  1. Though a little morbid I was comforted that they were together till the last. Love has a funny way of making us do things we normally won’t, I sort of got that from this story, maybe my overactive imagination! Thank you PJ for a twist at the end!

    • Yes, it sure is! Jodi, I just got back from the vet’s office. I had to have Bria euthanized tonight. Monday he diagnosed her with Congential Heart Failure and gave her a diretic to get the fluid off her lungs. This afternoon she started seizing one right after the other. It was terrible. I’m so sad.

  2. OH WHAT THE!!!!!!! What the hell happened!!! -_- The coke poisoned them? or the fries?/ food coma!!!?? Geeeeez!!! This gave me goosebumps! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    And love this: “smooch for an hour ” HAHA. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Creepy! Next time I see that old car, I will stop and peek inside. I’ll be that person in the horror movie that makes us yell “don’t go into that dark secret room.” No good can come of it! Love it Joy!

  4. Creepy, mystery to be solved. I’ll send Sherlock Holmes there. But Dr Watson is on leave. Can Sherlock manage on his own? LOL! ๐Ÿ˜This is a great story, PJ. Love it all the way. โค๏ธ

  5. A very interesting story, Joy! It leaves the reader with so many unanswered questions and a feeling that at least they were together…forever. Yet, thoughts of their parents and the questions they had to live with all those years.

  6. This was a tear jerker PJ. I was rooting for this couple and now I wonder how they died. It sounds like somehow they were trapped or some guy shot them both and they died holding hands. It’s bittersweet. Beautifully done ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Awe what a bittersweet story PJ. I like that they were holding hands, so since they were it must have been something innocent that happened, like the carbon monoxide that’s been suggested. Otherwise I don’t think they would have been holding hands. ๐Ÿ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
