The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Waiting for You
by Lynn Ruzzo

I waited so long, and still he didn’t show. He said he’d be there, just like always. Same time, same place. We’d never been apart very long. But those times lengthened as years went by. Less often, he’d come. I wondered if he were busy, or just unable to meet despite his want. Or maybe he no longer desired these short visits? Would he abandon me? Would I, him? I swallowed the urge to walk and never return. I had to. For him. For me. But eventually, I had to go. The world beyond called and I couldn’t resist. Before I faded back to the void, I saw his eyes on me, and I smiled before I vanished.
