WonHundred Word Wednesday

It's the time again. One prompt. Seventeen Authors. One-hundred word story. Here's this week's prompt:

The Truth About Love Is...

And here's my take on it:

“Do you really have to go?” he asked as she slid out of his embrace and backed away from him, her hand trailing feather-light along his arm, her touch like frozen air. Her eyes were sad as they turned toward the window, toward the rising sun. That look told him all he needed to know.
She faded slowly from sight, until there was nothing left of her, and he prayed with everything he had that she’d escape hell the next night and find her way to his arms. The truth about love is—it’s more powerful than even death.

Now see how everyone else did it!


  1. Love it, anyway this could be entwined into the graveyard story you did a bit back?

  2. How sweet. Hope she can come visit again.

  3. I loved it! Especially that he could embrace her, not typical ghost. :)

  4. I loved how she faded away like that! I feel like there's a huge possibility for a larger story with this one. :)

  5. Love the concept! Kind of reminded me of "Everneath" by Brodi Ashton. Not in a bad way, just the whole escaping Hell with the power of love idea.
    I love your description. "her hand trailing feather-light along his arm, her touch like frozen air" Beautiful. It pulled me in.

  6. The rising sun part had me guessing what she might be. Great conflict!
