“Darling put the dishes away.” Mark said to Elvyria.
Turning, she sighed and noticed the small decorative flowers on the rim. Blue Peonies. Tiny little loves. Elvyria sighed again. One plate could not replace moments lost. The porcelain in her hands felt so… breakable.
“I never want that again” Elvyria muttered under her breath.
Mark moved quickly, gently put a hand on her shoulder.
“Ellie, you don’t have to worry about the plates”
Elvyria turned to face Mark. His blue bright eyes. Two little loves. She smiled. Reaching up, she touched his porcelain skin. One man could help her heal those moments lost.
This piece is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was “I never want that again”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Be sure to check out the challenge every Tuesday! Photo by Brooke Lark on Unsplash.
