It was just how she’d left it, only the candles had been removed and his picture placed underneath.
No-one would ever forget that call in the middle of the night to say he wouldn’t be coming home.

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.

  1. So much said in so few words. A touching tale indeed.

    Wow. Less really can be more 🙂

  5. Dale says:

    That packed a punch in so few words!
    Well done!

  6. That is a call everyone fear….

  7. bearmkwa says:

    A world of story in those few words. It is a call that no one, EVER, wants to receive. Having had that call too too many times. I don’t use, nor rarely answer my phone. Everytime it rings or vibrates the fear is so great that I’m lucky if I can even answer it.

    I dread receiving such a call. Well done for making this even more ‘flash’ than most of us. I need to remember the ‘less is more’ approach.

  9. GHLearner says:

    Every word counts. A sad and moving story, well done.
