There’s a lost dream somewhere – one where I had imagined myself as an adult, getting married, having children, living in one of those suburbs with identical houses – where did that dream go? Is it cheesy to think this dream would be my happily ever after?

Photo Challenge #118: Dearly Missed


Elle and Emily ran playfully along the beach. It’s been such a long time since either of them had done it and it’s certainly been a long time since Elle wore anything that’s not black. “Em, where are you going? Slow down!” Elle called but Emily kept running and laughing, her blue dress floated in the air behind her.

Five steps ahead, Emily turned and smiled, “Come on, Elle, if you want me, you’ll have to catch me.”

Elle stopped, placed both hands on her knees, catching her breath. “Em…I…can’t.”

Emily had stopped running and now, she was walking backwards, “Sure you can, Elle. All you have to do is find your inner strength.” Her voice echoed as she faded away, “Find your inner strength.”

“Em!” Elle screamed, lurching into a upright position on her bed.

“Another bad dream?” A voice said beside her as her fiance joined her. She nodded, threw herself against his chest, and burst into tears. She tried to speak but her fiance softly stroke her hair and whispered, “Shh, don’t say anything. I know.”
