Saturday Mix — Lorraine 04.02.17 – Anniversary.


Love with a twist: Craft a “love story” in 25 to 150 words, with an unforeseen twist at the end.

It had been three days.

She always said to worry if three days went by without any word from her. Our last correspondence was she was leaving and it was raining.

I had kept my ear to the radio for news of road closures and the like. There was no word. Her phone wasn’t answering, there were no replies to my messages.

Every worst case scenario flooded my mind. To make it worse it was our anniversary. Three years of love and care, she was the best thing that had ever happened to me.

I grew more and more desperate. My heart was breaking. I couldn’t sleep for worry.

Then around eleven that night there was a gentle knock on the door.

There she stood, wearing nothing but a ‘Happy Anniversary’ sash and the widest grin.
