Holding On Forever

Note:  Having a tissue near by might be a good idea.

With a single yellow rose, her favorite, Alfred said good-bye to his dearly beloved, Agnes.  For seventy-five years she had been his constant companion, the only girl he ever loved, the only girl he ever kissed.  They each promised to never leave the other.  But after seventy-five years came the end of forever.

Alfred allowed himself to be led home by his son, to be made comfortable, and left alone in his room.  He lifted the gilted picture frame that held the photo of Agnes on the day they were married.  He caressed the glass with his gnarled thumb.  A smile crept to his lips because he knew he would be joining her very shortly and a new forever would start.

There are none. Read the prompts, get inspired, write something. No word count minimum or maximum. You don’t have to include the exact prompt in your piece, and you can interpret the prompt(s) any way you like.


No really; I need rules!

Okay; write 200-500 words on the prompt of your choice. You may either use the prompt as the title of your piece or work it into the body of your piece. You must complete it before 6 pm CST on the Monday following this post.
