This woods had become my home… Somehow the dull colors and dry wilderness suited me. I descried his silhouette on the bridge and smiled. This wooden passage saw us grow from curious kids, into young lovers.

Who would have guessed that it would also see the end on that terrible night? That stupid fight, and one unguarded moment was all it took for me to fall and never come back.

Now I was next to him, a shady hand almost touching his shoulder without him knowing.

“I’m here.” I whispered, before pushing him to the abyss in front of him.

Word Count: 100.

I don’t usually write after my stories, but I just wanted to apologize to everyone for not being very active two weeks ago, and then not participating at all last week… The Flu got to me too.

But anyways, I’m okay now and ready to get back! I’m looking forward to reading all of your entries, and I hope you like mine too. Feel free to comment whatever’s on your mind, and to explore the rest of my blog.

Have a great day!

  1. Dear Dennisse,

    So is this like in the movie Stardust where once he dies their spirits can then see and speak to each other? And live unhappily ever after, it would seem? I loved this tale and am still smiling at how you waited until the end to push all of us over the bridge with him. Lovely.

    1. I can’t believe you know that movie, it’s actually one of my favorites! It might be the case, we would need to wait until he gets there to find out though. 🙂
      Thank you very much for the compliment! If I’m being completely honest I wasn’t sure how it would end until I finished writing it. When I started it, it was meant to be a love story. lol
      Thanks again for stopping by!


      1. Dear Dennisse,

        Stardust is a favorite of mine, too. So much to see in many layers throughout. I watch it whenever I need a writer’s shot of motivation and joy.
