*Another creative writing piece moved over here from a 2013 Daily Prompt. It was quite mind boggling to write but it was also a ton of fun! You should give it a shot if you haven’t tried this out before! 🙂 *
Daily Prompt (July 27, 2013): Create a short story, piece of memoir, or epic poem that is 26 sentences long, in which the first sentence begins with “A” and each sentence thereafter begins with the next letter of the alphabet. Photographers, artists, poets: show us ORDERLY.
All the words had been said. Both of them stood at the crossroads wondering which way to go. Caring for each other was the only thing they knew. Death had happened between them. Eventually, what they had vanished without any notice. Further reasons were no longer needed. Guilt was something that dragged out what was left. Happy memories haunted them. In the moments that past as they looked at each other, they knew what had to be done. Just walk away…
Knocking down the comfort zone to the unknown was the only way out. Life’s path stretching out in front of the both of them was clearly unpredictable. Many doubts go through their heads as they struggle to step out for their final goodbyes. Nothing could possibly replace what they had experienced but times have changed. Obligated to act, they both stepped off the sidewalk facing opposite directions. Pausing for that one last glance before their new journey begins. Questions with no answers filled their faces. Resisting the temptation to step back, they move quickly forward in their separate directions. Suddenly, everything cleared up as the light shone down. Tears covered their faces as they ran back into each other’s embrace. Until then, this choice had never been more clear that it was in fact the right one.
Voyages were to begin as they pulled apart and ran off in their separate direction without looking back again. Waking up and realizing that it was time to revive themselves: their forever companions. X was the missing denominator they never found.
Yielding after an unknown time and in an quiet place, she knew it was time to embrace her journey and find herself again. Zooming back into learning how to love herself again until her special one comes by.
