Hello again, and welcome to Tantalizing Tuesday. The idea is pretty similar to that of the Flash Fiction Friday, however, I get to choose the picture this time, and also it is 200 words, or as near as.
So I have chosen a picture from:
So here is my 199 words.
“You don’t understand, I have to get away. I feel like I can’t breath anymore.”
“But Beth, please, I need you.”
She reached out to stroke his face, catching a fallen tear as she did. His heart ached at her touch. “No you don’t, you are strong. You will be fine here without me, you’ll see.”
Matt knew she spoke the truth. He also knew that this was his home. There was no other place for him to belong. He couldn’t say the same for Beth. She had itchy feet for a while now. He had watched as the light in her eyes faded with every day that she was trapped in this small town. Beth was destined for something bigger, always had been, and he knew that better than anyone. This was her one chance to follow her dream. As much as his heart broke, he couldn’t hold her back, he knew she would die inside.
No she had to go. He stood up straight and took a deep breath, taking one last look at her in the stabled they had grown up in. Her loyal horse standing by quietly as if he knew she was leaving too.
I hope you liked the snippet. There are lots more to read, just follow the link below.
See you next week with another pic. Until then, take care.
