  1. Weirdly, this prompt reminded me of a really intense play: Blackbird by David Harrower. I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing it, but I’ve read it. If you ever get the chance to read/see it… do so (at your own peril!). I should add a bunch of trigger warnings, but that would spoil the intensity.

  2. It’s awful, written during a lunch break but it fulfils my goal to write every day. It’s no chapter, more like a third person monologue. I’ve had an argument with myself whether I should post it or not; I guess the former won.

    “He couldn’t wait to see her again. But did he really mean that? If it were true then why did he refuse to follow her on social media? She had chosen someone else over him – that’s why and now, the thought of witnessing what he couldn’t have made him hate her. Hate them.
    He had only agreed to see her to make a statement that he was okay. He was ‘fine’. Deep down, in his guts, she had hurt him and he resented that.
    Truth be told, what he wanted more than anything was for her to tell him; she wasn’t happy. On their last brief encounter, she had not been herself. She had been broken. She didn’t admit this though, in fact she had made out that everything was great.
    So there we have it. He had loved her and she had loved someone else. She broke his heart and months later he wasn’t okay. She was great though, he wasn’t, but she was fine.
    So really, he never wanted to see her again. He didn’t want to be a part of that life she lived anymore. And yet, he couldn’t wait to see her again is what he told her.”

    • I don’t think it’s awful at all! Thank you for having the courage to share this with us and for participating. 🙂
