The Holiday

Linking with Sacha Black for the WRITESPIRATION #124. The challenge is to write a story using the weekly theme/prompt but in just 52 words. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

The prompt for this week is – The Holiday. 


Her eyes opened to a bright sunny morning in an empty room. They had just broken up.

She left her room and walked towards the beach. Habits die hard, they say. Twenty-five years together was a long time.

She wanted freedom, not loneliness.

Won the battle? Yes. But lost the war!

  1. She’s alone, but not necessarily lonely. 🙂 So yes, I think she won both. Or would soon feel that she’s won both. Short but strong story.

  2. It takes a lot of guts to walk away from a 25 year relationship. So I assume the decision wouldn’t have been impulsive. So, she might as well have won the war 🙂 Just sharing my thoughts!. Lovely words there! 🙂
