My prompt: “Make me feel heartbroken in 4 sentences or less.”
I could still hear the doctor’s words ringing in my head as I sat there, holding my wife’s hand.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Phillips, but I’m afraid that there’s nothing we can do.”
The pistol was surprisingly heavy in my hand; it had been years since I had last removed it from its drawer.
I tilted my head back, looking up at the ceiling, imagining that my wife was beckoning me towards her.
Author’s note: I am not at all depressed! Quite the opposite, in fact. But the prompt said to write something heartbreaking, and so I did. Don’t be worried! The flow of fiction won’t stop!
