Hello May! Today is a triple whammy of special; May Day, the first day of working on Keeper’s again, AND it’s of course a Friday. Last week was a busy one with family, my graduation ceremony, and finishing Camp NaNo early, but this weekend should be lots of fun. Hubs and I have a new game to play together, gardening to do, and I have lots of editing to run through.
I hope you all enjoy your May Day Friday and get out and enjoy the sunshine and the dew.
Fiction Friday 07:
Prompt: Close your eyes and think deeply of an emotion you’ve felt in the past three days, nothing fleeting, something strong and overwhelming.
Loneliness is like a wide open wound, bleeding and festering. It grows and grows and gets worse as time goes by, but just as any other chronic pain, it can be ignored. That is, until something returns your focus to it. The cold side of your partner’s bed, tripping over the lost shoe of a loved one, never to be reclaimed. Or even someone asking questions that bring that lost one back to the forefront of your thoughts. Loneliness is a plague, for even after it has been cured, there remain scars for years to come, always hidden from view, always waiting for someone to slice it open and begin the bleeding again. Only time can cure loneliness, time and trust. Trust that you can survive by yourself, with only yourself to rely on, and trust that the person who cut you won’t willingly do it again.
“I’m giving you Erik’s spreads. I want them re-done, polished and presented to me in a weeks time. Give them the same care and consideration that you gave the Brandt photos and you will be fine.” Eyvett smiled and stood causing Annabelle to stand as well.
