She refreshed her tears
The 💯 STORY CHALLENGE is often about putting an Unsplash picture into focus. I hope I do this one justice.
Her memories proved bittersweet. One moment she smiled, recalling those funny ways. Then the knowledge those delights were lost forever refreshed her tears. Is that life after death? When someone recalls you with fondness, do you survive within their thoughts? In which case, physical death prefaces our presence withering away, for as those who remember us meet their own fate, a little more will die. But each reminiscence shapes one mind, which affects another. So perhaps together we create a shared consciousness of the past. These confused thoughts, right or wrong, provided no comfort. She wanted her nan back.
