Smile in her eyes...


I was inspired to do this story in 55 words after reading Matthew’s post at AbodeOneThree. I wrote it on a whim, vaguely based on a distant memory; hoping it is as clear and comforting to you as it is in my mind even now after all this time.

''It was a day like any other. She woke up, unusually tired. Gulping down a hot cup of coffee, she grabbed her keys and rushed out the door, just in time to catch the morning bus. She sat beside him in her usual seat and smiled, though she had thought she would never smile again''.

Have a great weekend guys just in case I am not able to speak to you again this week.

  4. Yes these are fun, I am an infrequent contributor, but love it! Yours leaves the Peeps to wonder what happens next. Ah! "wonder", it is what keeps us alive.

    Is this perhaps the beginning of a segment of your life story? (No response expected--grin!)
