Friday Fictioneers: Closure

She sat staring out the window of the little coffee shop. Her hands were folded around the warmth of her mug. She blew the steam, sipped, and stared. Her mind went back to the voice message. “I need closure” he said. “Meet me at 2:00 on Sunday “. He didn’t need to tell her where. They had spent most Sundays there. It had been their ritual. She hadn’t been here since he left their apartment on that Sunday two months ago. They hadn’t come here on that Sunday either by two o’clock they were done. Maybe she needed closure also.

  1. Dear Lingering,
    In answer to a question. It’s perfectly okay to share the photo on your blog as long as it’s for the purpose of accompanying your flash fiction. If you were to lift the picture and use it for say a gallery without permission or giving credit that would be another story.
    In any case, welcome to Friday Fictioneers.
    Shalom,
    Rochelle

  2. sad story.. the fact that neither has to tell the other where to meet but still, they just..know.. it kinda seems like they’ve been together a long time.. and truly had something. i enjoyed reading it though.. ^^

    • Yea, that’s kinda how it felt as it came out of my fingers, like they had been together for a while. Only being able to use 100 words has it’s draw backs but in a way it’s nice because it leaves so much for the imagination.

  3. isn’t it fun how readers can fill in the blanks with their imagination? Your piece lends itself so well to that. Your photo banner is beautiful by the way. Makes me want to travel that path. Thanks.
