Hi, it's time for another segment of Thursday Thrills, where I'm taking it today to my original hometown - New York, and since I'm taking it to my territory, I'm going to post my two favorite characters - Darla & Tyler, and you're going to learn something in this segment, because I won't give certain spoiler alerts to this piece. But I encourage you to read closely on this, in this segment, you'll understand the story "About The Night Ride Home" and long before Darla met Charlie. It explains certain pieces of her past.
Darla would’ve never thought she’d be back in
, especially for
her ex’s wedding. Charlie was getting married, and here she was in New York New York, in Times Square,
the very place where the two spent their time kissing and making out in the
middle of the traffic, on the night of October 29th, 2002 – her twenty-eighth
It was there where she and Charlie stood between the avenues that made up Times Square, between Broadway & Seventh Avenue on 45th Street; the very heart of Times Square. Too bad the place doesn’t exist anymore. What was once a merging avenue of pure traffic was now a one lane avenue that made up the
Times Square; only two
portions of Broadway was now sealed off for pedestrian traffic.
She’ll never forget the time when Charlie and Darla posed for a picture kissing at the Toys R’ Us in
it was their last night together and they caused quite a scene in the toy
store, where they were asked to leave by security. It was there where the two
decided to create some mayhem, even though Charlie had just got out of court a
month earlier. It was then, where they decided to paint the town red; one last
time, before they left to . Portland,
Long before she met
in 2004, Darla was celebrating her divorce, even though she signed an annulment
that she would never get half of her ex-husband’s fortunes. She was free; happy
to be away from the boredom and the controlling environment her ex-husband put
her through, and was madly in love with a caterer that showed her more to life
than just living the lavish life. What a transformation for Darla, going from a
teenager that fell in love with an heir from Long Island to being in love with
a caterer from Tyler Queens. Then again, if it wasn’t
from Charlie, Darla would’ve never became her own person. It was too bad, their
relationship lasted for only two years. Darla, at that time, was learning how
to live responsibly, while Charlie lived recklessly.
Nine years later, Darla was at the very same location – Times Square, but this time holding hands with
. She was grown now, in her late
thirties, but happy to be with someone who made her life completely whole.
Everywhere she looked in Tyler Times Square
triggered her memories; both pleasurable and painful.
It was a beautiful cloudy day in
. They walked down the north
pedestrian section of Times Square facing south, where the new New York Times
building rose above the old New York , filled with massive
billboards. My, this place has changed.
She gave a long sigh, which made it obvious for Newsday
Building to detect that something was bothering
her, but she fought hard to fight it. Tyler
He turned to her and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing,” She cradled her arms around
’s, leaning her head against his
shoulder. She didn’t want to tell him
what happened. Even though it was in the past, she was getting flashbacks in
her mind about how she fell in love with someone who set her free. And now here
she was, making her way to her ex’s wedding, which was located downtown, but
they made a pit-stop, since Tyler never been to Times Square. Tyler
“Are you sure?” he asked again, knowing something was really wrong with her.
“I’m fine.” She wanted to tell him, but hesitated by being cryptic. “It’s just that this place brought me a lot of memories; a lot of fond and painful memories.”
“Did you and your ex-husband come out here a lot?”
“Oh god, no!” she scoffed. “My ex-husband hated coming through the city, unless he went to work. It was my other ex.”
quickly grabbed on. Then again, he remembered when first met Charlie, it wasn’t
a pleasant time for him. It’s what broke their relationship up in the first
place; Darla lying to him that she wasn’t seeing anyone at that time. What’s
amazing is that the three got over their issues, and Charlie invited both of
them over for her wedding in Tyler Lower Manhattan,
and he was now friends with her on Facebook.
