Jack and Leigh Ann are two people of the opposite sex. Jack is walking on the sidewalk. Leigh Ann is sitting on a bench.
“Hey!” Leigh Ann calls out to Jack. “Why are you walking?”
“It’s what I’ve always done,” Jack says, pacing around the bench. “Why are you sitting?”
“I’ve always sat,” she explains. “Would you like to meet my family?” Her mother and sister smile and wave. Leigh Ann’s father isn’t there; he is a walker, so sometimes he walks by.
“No time,” says Jack, turning his eyes toward the horizon. “It was nice to meet you.”
“Wait!” Leigh Ann says. Jack keeps walking. Leigh Ann struggles out of the bench and begins to walk after him. “Wait up!”
Leigh Ann’s mother shakes her head. It is just like how she met her husband. Leigh Ann’s mother has happy and sad memories of her husband.
Leigh Ann catches up with Jack. Jack glances at Leigh Ann. He slows down for her.
“What’s your name?” he asks.
Jack and Leigh Ann walk for years. Sometimes Jack says ” left.” Sometimes Leigh Ann says “right.” They usually go left.
One time, they stop by Leigh Ann’s family and say hello.
“You have my blessing!” Leigh Ann’s mother yells as they walk past.
Jack and Leigh Ann come to a fork in the road.
“Let’s go left!” Jack exclaims.
“I’d like to go right,” Leigh Ann says.
“That’s a stupid idea. You go right, then. See if I care!”
Jack goes left. Leigh Ann goes right. Jack is angry. Leigh Ann is sad.
Jack grows tired and lonely. He misses having Leigh Ann to talk to. Jack sits down.
Leigh Ann keeps walking.
