Six Sentence Story: Day by Day

Sailboat, Water, Sunset, Vacation, Yacht, Sailing

She stood on the deck of The Horizon, contemplating.

She could just leave; pack up, set sail and never look back. She could forget all her failures, heartbreak, foolish decisions and set forth into timeless obscurity, no one would notice anyway.

She clenched her fists and inhaled deeply.

Of course she wouldn’t, just like she hadn’t the last time she was on her dead husband’s boat.

Self-pity over, she walked back to her car, feeling the weight of the world grinding her down with every struggling step back towards reality.

    Truly as you write, “the world grind[s] down on her.” We are only getting half the story here ( a great continuation?) but I would think even if she doesn’t take off forever, this poor lady needs a break. A vacation somewhere for a week or two, time to think. Maybe then she could face the world once again. Well written S.

      It might just be a continuation! 🙂 Yeah, it does sound as if she’s going through a lot and taking some time off is something that we all need! Thanks for your comment! 🙂

    I want to know if she will eventually succumb to the pull to leave.

    I wonder if anyone is that alone that their disappearance would be unnoticed. However it looks as though she has already made up her mind not to make a hasty decision. Life is still precious even though a loved one is lost.

    It sounds like getting away for a while is exactly what she needs, even if she doesn’t just vanish for good. You capture her pain really well. Great six sentences. 🙂
