Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts Friday Fictioneers. Each week Rochelle chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.
The edge of uncertainty
The celebrations drew to a close. My husband led me outside. The wedding guests accompanied us to the archway, singing and cheering as they waved us through to the beginning of our life together.
In our new home, he gently embraced me. He started to speak but hesitated, struggling to control his emotions.
“I’m so sorry,” he said at last. “We have done what was required of us but I can’t do more. I cannot stay tonight. Please try not to be angry with me. I’ll return in the morning.”
I stared at the door as it closed behind him.
