Exactly 55 words



“I’m happy for you, I really am” her voice cracked as she whispered into the phone.

“You were right. I need to make a clean start”. He admired the new, shiny, gold band on his finger.

She immediately prepared the mental checklist for the swift, emotional withdrawal she was about to initiate.

Go numb. Check.

Neat. Tidy even.

And fiction or not, I guess ALL of us have a story very similar to that one to tell, in varying degrees of impact it had on our lives, but a similar story none the less...

Wander: Sometimes it shatters into so many pieces that there's no way to collect it all.

Grrl: It's ok Grrl. (hands you some tissue)

Jay and Lavi: : )

S and Gypsy : Thanks!

Sun, Casa, Gettingthere: I read all of yours and thought they were great. I love that so much can be expressed by 55 simple words.

MM: I did have fun. Thanks!

Stuti: It's all about self-preservation I suppose.
