Lillie McFerrin's Weekly Flash Fiction Prompt - 'Forgotten'
This is where this week's prompt took me:
Alice had been sifting through the contents of the old box in search of something else, when she stumbled across them. She couldn’t resist opening them and having a read, reminiscing over her lost love. The letters had been nothing less than an out-pouring of his soul, and she found herself sick again with the love they had once shared; tears rolling down her face as they had when she had first opened them.
She heard her husband call up to her; wondering where she was and whether she had found their old wedding photos. She didn’t reply as she bundled the letters up and stuffed them into another box, trying hard not to think about the day she’d received the news that he wouldn’t be back; instead rummaging through the other boxes and pulling out the album from the special day she had spent with the man downstairs, shutting the memories of the love of her life away to be forgotten again.
