As she sipped her coffee, he carefully combed and braided her silken strands.
“No-one ever pampered me like this, physically or emotionally; not even my husband of ten years.”
“You call this pampering? For me it’s just love, and this is the only way I know to love.”
“I envy the person who gets to marry you.”
“Who stops you from being that person?”

It’s been eight years since. Just like a morning dew drop he appeared in her life, moistened the sun burned path, taught her how to live and love and vanished like the dew drop vanishes with the rising day light.


Written for Friday Fictioneers hosted by ever smiling Rochelle. This week mush overcame my mind !

  1. Dear Horus,

    To have found such love and then lost. You left me with a lump in my throat.



    • Dear Rochelle,
      There are so many of us, who stumble upon the chance and then miss it ! And I feel it might be a loss to both. Thanks for you comment

  2. Lovely story and nicely written. I’m not sure why he didn’t stay – she didn’t marry him?

  3. Oh, lovely and bittersweet. I hope she treasures the memory.

  4. This is beautiful and sad. We take good things for granted too often.

  5. Well, this brought a tear to my eye. You captured true love and extreme loss beautifully in 100 words.

  6. This piece packs such a punch in so few words: well done.

  7. What a lyrical account of the life and death of a relationship. Beautifully done.

  8. A love story of a different kind–tender and wonderful. I enjoy reading about second chances.

    All my best,

  9. Ah that’s sad they didn’t stay together.

  10. A lovely one night stand. Some romances can never be.
    This was beautiful.

  11. Oh so sad.. I guess the memory will always linger. Great use of the metaphor

  12. I suspect, if I’m reading this as it was meant, although eight years may seem short, it may still be the best eight years of life – with much good to carry forward as a result of it.

  13. This is special, really special.

  14. Love found and lost…how bittersweet.

  15. This is very touching, demonstrating the effects even a fleeting encounter can have.

  16. Beautiful. I loved this line, “…moistened the sun burned path…” Well done.

  17. Beautiful story of love, no matter how short. I’m sure the memory will live on for a long time in both their hearts.

  18. So sad. They were meant for each other. Lovely imagery.

    • They might have been – or may be his role was just to make sure she is back to living, and disappear as the dew drop ! Thanks for your nice comment Margaret! 🙂
