A while back, I saw a post on another blog challenging people to write a 69 word story. Here’s what I came up with…
Isaac stopped kissing me and then I heard the click. Cold steel pressed against my temple as I thought about the gun.
“Tell me why I shouldn’t pull the trigger.”
I thought about my life. Searched for a reason, any reason why I didn’t deserve to die.
“Because you loved me once.”
“That’s not good enough.”
I closed my eyes.
He said, “Goodbye.”
I thought about his kiss.
