Darrell Case

Author Darrell Caseabout this book: A collection of stories to inspire and encourage you. Told in the style of those spoken on back porches of America long ago. A penniless couple on their honeymoon found the true meaning of love. A mechanic's life changing experience with John Dillinger and a small boy. These are just two of the stories in Tales from My Back Porch

The Best Day

It was raining. A slow, chilly, miserable drizzle soaked the trees, the beach, everything. Droplets ran down the window like tears.

Her face downcast, her eyes moist, Dora stood staring at the gray-green ocean's waves lapping at the shore. She longed to dig her toes into the sand to feel its gritty roughness and the coolness below the hot surface. Her sigh was like a soft sob. The sound tore through Paul like a knife in his heart.

How he loved this woman. He had since the first time he saw her in the student union at Earlham College in eastern Indiana, where the two of them both studied and worked. Dora wore no make-up; her hands were enclosed in latex gloves, her dark blonde hair was tied in a low ponytail under her hairnet. Petite and willowy, she looked even younger than her 18 years. Sensing Paul's eyes on her as she served up meat loaf and mac and cheese to the chattering students, she looked up and smiled. Paul's breath caught in his throat. He managed a foolish grin, hoping she couldn't tell how awkward he felt. It had taken him three weeks to muster the courage to ask her out. He stammered his invitation, the words tumbling out as she gazed quizzically at him. He couldn't believe she said yes. That night after taking her home, he knew she would be his wife.
