Lasting Regrets – #Drabble

February 17, 2016

for Write on Wednesday – Prompt: Regret

Lasting Regrets

Maggie placed the flowers in the little vase by the gravestone. She bent down and rubbed the top of it. She sighed.

“I wish I had told you,” she whispered.

Maggie returned to her flat in the city. She gathered the few belongings of her friend and placed them in a box. They’d shared the flat for nearly ten years. Maggie knew Helena had feelings for her. She’d always known. The side-glances. The daily notes of affection. The weekly flowers on the kitchen table.

Maggie was old school though. She couldn’t bring herself to tell Helena: I love you too.
