December 22, 2016 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that steps beyond. It can be a door, a tunnel, a worm hole in space. You can create an explicit for what “beyond” is or you can simply use the word. Follow the prompt where it takes you, beyond what you think you know is there.
I never knew real love until I met you. You opened a door I thought well hidden within me.
I was faced with a love I couldn’t get over. Why me I thought? What have I done to deserve this?
Years of trauma and abuse were pushed to one side. You allowed me to love you and you loved me in return in ways I never knew I could experience.
Just be you you’d say. You’ve nothing to prove. I’m impressed already so just stay as you are.
Nothing is easy is it? But every day we try again.
