“I will always be with you” , It was a promise they had both made. She skimmed through the pages of her diary , trying to read through her flood of thoughts, finding it hard to imagine, she missed the signs in plain sight. Tears fell on the pink pages, turning them a shade darker yet the ink stayed. Her frail body swayed with each sob yet she kept looking at the cellphone screen, expecting any text or call from him. She expected his scent to fill the doorway any moment, but he did not come or call.

“I will always be with you” , It was a promise they had both made and yet she had strayed. She did not deserve being forgiven, yet she hoped he would understand. Just once, she cried, just once.

  1. I’m delighted to have you join us at Two Shoes Tuesday! This was a poignant tale of the bitter consequences of promises broken. At first I am feeling sorry for her, then not so much. Excellent write!

  2. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nicely written story about things coming out wrong.

    Been there, done that, Lady N. I was the fellow whose wife had strayed. I could have forgiven her but she never came back. It very sad for almost a year. Most is a story that I will never tell.
