Flash Fiction: Awaited

It’s been too long since I last did a flash fiction challenge, so I decided to jump in with Charli’s over at Carrot Ranch, following this prompt:  In 99 words (no more, no less) use the word mesh in a story.

Here goes!

Awaited

Today has been long awaited.

I move slowly down the long hall towards my destiny, the place where my past and present mesh into a single moment. I swallow, as if that will quell my nerves.

Spectators are waiting. For some, today is a long promise finally fulfilled. It’s strange to think that, as the reason they’re here has nothing to do with them. The real reason isn’t among these faces. She’s vibrant in my mind’s eye, though. She’s eternally beautiful there.

A moment before my time, the official’s voice breaks through.

“May God have mercy on your soul.”
