Trifextra – Beautiful Lie

Well …. This weekend we are ditching the usual 33-word limit in favour of a 3-sentence story. Here is where my love of correct punctuation and long sentences will come into its own, methinks… Haha, I’m only kidding. I wouldn’t do that to you.
Or would I ….?

They met when they were young – too young to realize there was a whole world out there for the taking, too young to believe what others told them about love. They stayed together through thick and thin, always faithful, always adoring, and when they married at 21, he promised her that he would always be there for her, to cherish and love her, to look after her and make her smile.
Today, the rain fell in summer for the first time, in sympathy with her tears, as she stood by herself and screamed under the huge glowering sky, “YOU LIAR!” – but nobody answered, because tombstones can’t talk.

  1. Excellent use of hyphens and commas. Also, very tragic story. Although, it’s probably a good thing that tombstones can’t talk, in a way; that would get morbid and horrifying fast.

    1. Thank you 🙂 yes I agree, that would get all morbid and creepifying. I don’t really go in for all that. A bit of psychological creep factor, yes. But not really any more than that!
      Glad you enjoyed the tragedy. If ‘enjoy’ is the right word to use!
