The following are excerpts of a word-count-practice I did today. The actual drabble is rubbish but I liked these lines. I hope you enjoy them, too. ❤

“They reach out to her with their proclamations of family and normal life and brothers not lost and good memories.”

“She has always been a mix of contradictions.”

“He asks her if it was worth it, to discover all those secrets. She swallows a reply, shame coloring her cheeks.”

“She breaks. The dam bursts apart and the river floods.”

“She is empty and begging to be filled. Now he is speechless, left without words.”

“He knows now. Hurt is infectious. It disguises itself as caring and nestles into your heart through all the eye-contact and brushing fingertips. He tried to stay away from all her broken glass.”
