2014 minus 46: A very short story

Posted: 16 November 2013 in Uncategorized

It’s been a while since I put any fiction on this site, so here’s a one paragraph story, something that makes a fast fiction appear over-written.

No title, no context. You can let your imagination fill in any gaps you feel are there…

I wanted to reach over, to hold her hand. But I didn’t. I wanted to take her in my arms and kiss her. But I didn’t. Instead we uttered trivialities, both of us avoiding what we wanted to say. We spoke… carefully, memories and hopes underscoring every word. The bell rang; we exchanged a long look. Then she left the room, and I went back to my prison cell, both of us heading for home.
