Visual Dare – Bells in Rain
My first contribution to Angela Goff’s Visual Dare flash fiction challenge.
I’ll always remember the bells.
Small bells, tinkling in the morning breeze, just outside the door.
I remember the rainy morning you put them up, standing on your tiptoes in a white chemise.
It’s been a month now and the DA just called to tell me he’s going to seek the death penalty. I feel bad for him. He really believes it helps.
He hangs up and sets justice in motion.
I hang up and relive the whole bag of horrors.
The bells ring in the wind, marking another empty day of a life without you in it.
