Mixed Doubles

by John Schoneboom

Finally, a well-deserved holiday on a lovely remote island for Real Helen. She felt a mixture of anxiety and hopefulness regarding meeting Julian once again, but there was no stopping it now. She might as well approach it all optimistically. At the very least, it was a great comfort to know that when she looked in the mirror, it was the real deal looking back.

She had already gotten to the cabin and settled in when he knocked on the door. In perambulated Julian carrying a small guitar and his organic farm association membership card.

They eyed each other up. Were they for real?

In practically no time it became more than clear that Julian was quite sweet and Helen was unwaveringly faithful to the ideal one had of her. The two of them were engaged in a mutual cycle of doom.
