100 Word Wednesday: Week 40

Thanks Bikurgurl: this one really got me thinking today!

He had brought her breakfast in bed.
Pancakes and strawberries. Her favourite.
Those adorable rose petals were almost her undoing.
How could she tell him?
Things had not been good between them for months.
The magic they once shared had just slipped away as they got on with other things, and now it was too late to turn back the clock to try and recapture what they’d had.
The berries wept from the heat, staining the delicacies beneath.
Then she saw the note poking out from under the plate.
It simply read ‘Goodbye’.
Unbidden, a tear trickled down her cheek.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    A lovely way to say Goodbye. So he got in first, still it is sad either way. Nice story.
