with 8 comments

 

After ten years, cobwebs craze the stripped walls. Boxes perch on upturned furniture, each layered with despair.

The kitchen, bright, spacious, the only room completed, is kept perfect in his memory.

Her soul, crushed along with his body, spurns their rotting home.

 



This is my submission for yeahwrite‘s gargleblaster challenge to write a story in 42-words.

    • Ooops, chasing my own tail and getting lost. Thank you for the read and the comment. It took a while to pin this one down – getting those descriptions to sound right within that word limit.
