Anyone who had a heart

The photograph below is from CookmePancakes @
For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a woman sitting on a chair looking out of a large window at a long suspension bridge on a gray, foggy day.

How could she have been so trusting, so gullible, so desperate?
Love had never come calling until now.
And then it was gone.
What had she done?
She had given him something so precious, so pure, so untainted and he had left her in pieces.
The weather matched her mood, her mind foggy from the memory of the night before.
She couldn’t remember that much when she thought about it.
She sat and looked out of the window, thinking of the outside mist crying the tears she refused to shed.
He was not worth it.

She gathered her things and went downstairs to the lobby.
Voices attracted her attention, one in particular and she froze to the spot.
He had found his next victim.
She called security and together they walked into the bar……………………..

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a couple dining. The man has a glass of wine in his hand and he is looking at his companion. The woman is staring the other way, holding a few long stem flowers.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
