The Last Goodbye
For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 11 March 2016
It seemed like yesterday, but it’d been awhile since we saw each other.
Emily and I were high school sweethearts. After graduation, I joined the army and she went to study art in Paris. We broke up believing a long distance relationship wouldn’t work for us.
I was hoping that having dinner with her that evening would rekindle the love we once had.
But it didn’t. She had found someone new.
A light drizzle greeted us as we left the restaurant.
“This is where I go,” she said. “Have a great life.”
And with that, she turned and walked away.
