What If We Didn’t Lose Them? (A flash fiction)
“If we didn’t lose them, would you fight for our love?
I don’t know if we would have had a boy or a girl, but I hope they were boys ‘cos it would really be great to have cute little guys running around the house. They’d probably be each other’s best friends, fighting and defending each other,
poking jokes, and making fun of each other.
I wonder how they would be when they grow up together. Will they be rowdy, noisy, and disorderly? I wonder how we will be as parents to our little boys? I probably would be the spoiler and give it all, mom, and you would take on the role of a disciplinarian dad.
Maybe, we will be the best our boys could ever have. I am sure we will be.
Sadly, we’ll never know, for we lost them before we even knew.
Do you think we’d lose each other if we didn’t lose them? If we didn’t lose them, do you think we’d survive all the trials we would encounter? Do you think we’ll still be together if we didn’t lose them?
Now, I pause and wonder. Are they happy in heaven knowing we’ve parted ways?
If we didn’t lose them, would you fight for our love?
