Benegasi - Blood giving friends

Benegasi - Blood giving friends

By J. Benegasi

…goes the blood and the heart.

I desperately want to say something, so here I go. Haven’t I seen you here before?

Yes, he says, I always give blood. It makes me feel good to give someone life.

Me too, I say. How about doing lunch afterwards to replace the blood you gave, I ask.

He thought about it and said - yes.

As the blood went into the bag, it also raced to my heart. He said yes!

After we were done giving blood we went to lunch. It was good, we both thought, and so was the conversation.

I think his blood was racing to his heart, too - he asked me out to dinner! Of course, I said yes.

After dinner that night, we became best of blood giving friends.

Drip. Drip. Drip.

No love, but a good friend to give blood with.
