The Journey #FlashFiction

Photo prompt – Dawn Miller


‘I need to find out who I am,’ she can’t meet my eye.

I want to tell her I know who she is; the love of my life. I want to tell her I’ve spent weeks organising a flash mob to dance her perfect proposal, but I don’t. I watch her leave.

I have my dignity, even if I don’t have her.


I tell him I’m leaving and my heart actually breaks. But he’s been avoiding me. My friends have seen him out with a bunch of girls. I walk away.

I have my dignity, even if I don’t have him.

‘The Journey’ was written for Friday Fictioneers. A weekly 100 word story challenge prompted by the fabulous Rochelle. Do read the other entries and/or post your own story.

  1. Oof! It’s awful to break up over a misunderstanding like that. But then again, if they lacked the skills to explain themselves well enough to clear the air, they might not have been ready for marriage anyway.

  2. Ugh…I hate when signals get crossed and misinterpreted like that. I wanted to explain it to both of them :). I hope they get a chance to talk and work it out. I really liked reading the “Him” and “Her” versions.

  3. I know I’m late but ughh! I’m going to be thinking about this one all day, I’m a sucker for tragic miscommunication

Thanks so much for reading!
