Hey, y’all! I’ve already shown some of you this, but when I read this story to my awesome friend Gracie 💖, she suggested that I post it here! It might be confusing for some of you because it’s fanfiction, but I think you’ll get the main message. I wrote this story based on personal experience, as I was in a “reflecting mood” earlier on in the day that I wrote it. So, here it is!!! Reflecting
An AIO Fanfiction Short Story
In Connie’s POV
I was in a reflective mood. No one was in the shop but Jason and I. He was cleaning the counter and I was staring out the window. Thinking. Remembering. Wondering. Suddenly, I heard a voice behind me that made me jump. “What’s up, Connie?” “Oh, Jason, you scared me! I guess I was daydreaming!” I grinned sheepishly. His blue eyes twinkled. “Yeah, you were in your own little world. What were you thinking about?” I took a deep breath.“I was just wondering, what if my mom and I hadn’t moved to Odyssey? I mean, what if my parents hadn’t divorced, and we had stayed in California? We wouldn’t have met everyone here, and we wouldn’t have had so many good memories, and-” “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down, Connie. God doesn’t want us to dwell on the ‘what ifs’. He knows the future, and He always has a plan. He used your parents’ divorce and your move to Odyssey for good, even though you didn’t know it at the time. You have to trust Him, Connie. You have to live for the now, not dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.” I looked up at Jason and smiled. “You know, that sounds like something your dad would say.” He grinned. “Well, I should hope so.” “Thanks, Jason.” “So, now that you’re done reminiscing, can you come help me clean the tables now?” He teased. “I knew you had an angle!” I playfully swiped at him. “Hey!” He pretended to be hurt, then as I stood up, he grabbed the cloth he had been cleaning with and yelled, “I’ll get you for that!” I laughed as he chased me around. Yep, I thought. Jason is right. I need to live for the now.
I hope y’all liked it!!!
