He couldn’t believe she’d thrown it out, it was so good.
He thought about asking if he could have it, but that would have been too forward, and she didn’t know he existed anyway.
He’d seen her painting at the window, her canvas an almost perfect replica of the view.
No, tonight he would come and retrieve it from the trash, frame it and hang it on his wall.
He might not be able to look into her eyes but he could share what she’d seen through them.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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. Iain Kelly says:

    A shame he is too shy to make more of a move. Perhaps she will see him taking it and it could be the start of a beautiful relationship!

  2. Sadje says:

    Great take on the prompt.

  3. msjadeli says:

    Maybe one day, she will speak to him…

  4. Sandra says:

    That is sweet. And poignant.

  5. Tannille says:

    I feel like shouting “just say hello”. Sweet.

  6. Dale says:

    Awww… I kind of sort of hope she catches him at it… strike up a conversation and who knows?
    Lovely, Di

  7. ceayr says:

    He’s a numpty, needs to man up!
    But cool tale.

  8. James McEwan says:

    He seems like a sort of admiring stalker, with obsessive intentions. What if she discovers him?

  9. granonine says:

    Aw, poor shy guy 🙂

  10. I love this take. Well done!

  11. “he could share what she’d seen through them.” At first I thought it was a kind of stalking, but you made his love-from-afar very poignant.
