Flash Fiction: Leave

This week’s flash fiction challenge is one of length – write a story in 100 words. I’m game.



I approach the place Kendra is resting. I creep, as if it will make my task easier.

“Baby, I have something to tell you.”

Silence answers me.

“This will be hard for you to hear.” I twist the plastic surrounding the bouquet. “I’ve been seeing someone else. For the past four months.”

I swallow, imagining tears, screaming. Instead, there is silence.

A lump forms in my throat. This is harder than I thought it would be.

“I don’t expect you to understand. Just remember that I love you.”

I place the daisies – Kendra’s favorite – on her headstone.

It’s time for me to leave.
