Two Candles Are Lit..by Michael
There was a citywide blackout during the summer of 1967. Florence located her flashlight as she searched for a few candles to light up on her front porch. Luckily there was a full moon out that evening which helped everybody to see somewhat better outdoors. Neighbors flocked outside lighting candles and listening to battery operated radios on news updates when the power might be restored. Another six to eight hours was their prediction. Her new neighbor next door had no candles on his front porch as he sat in the dark. She went back inside for some spare candles and then walked over to where he was sitting. Frankie introduced himself and thanked her for this kind gesture as she was she invited to join him. A few clouds passed over the bright moon that July summer evening. Only porches were lit up by candles and flashlights. The blackout lasted for a long seven hours as finally power was restored. Frankie asked Florence if she was hungry as dinner time was missed by all just seven ago. Her eyes lit up and she said, "you got a deal". It just so happened that her favorite dinner was the same as his. He prepared it as fifteen minutes later they sat down together in his living room with two snack trays set up. They watched a movie together and ate and talked all at the same time. The following July summer a bride and groom sat down at their wedding table. The lights were dimmed by the master of ceremonies as Florence and Frankie lit two candles...Maybe romantic trails starts during a blackout on a front porch of a new next door neighbor. Then it follows to the finishing line of a wedding table, where lights are dimmed and two candles are lit....
