She read a poem and cried
The 💯 STORY CHALLENGE and parting.
Although he’d never wanted to settle, they’d shared wonderful places to live. The latest home he found was a superb ranch style property boasting a hot tub in the secluded back yard. It was always him who moved them on. Pleas to start a family went unheard. Their fifth wedding anniversary celebration ended up skinny dipping in the jacuzzi with champagne. During the lovemaking, she was in a dream. After carrying her to the bedroom, he clad her in a warm sweater. Then she slept as the pills in the drink took effect. When she woke, a book of poems and a flower welcomed her return to consciousness. The bookmark was a poem he wrote out especially for her called ‘Unreal’. She read it and cried.
