Last Chance

Another attempt at 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups, after a long absence from this blogging mallarkey.

This week’s challenge is 100 words, plus the phrase “as midnight struck…”

It was New Year’s Eve.

I’d missed you so much in the weeks since we’d had our last bitter argument. Every day, a deep dark chasm of loneliness had threatened to engulf me.

Reliving those last minutes with you, I realised that I’d overreacted and decided to give us one last chance.

I sent you a message “Meet me at 12, by the pier…let’s put the petty arguments behind us”

I arrived early, wrapped warmly against the frosty night, and waited.

As midnight struck, my heart pounded with anticipation.

But this was a night of endings.

I walked silently into 2013 without you.
