Aheila's Drabble Day prompt this week is Light. Check out her blog for the rules.

When Stacey left the Piggly Wiggly, she found Joe leaning against her Honda.

"Got a light?" he asked, holding up a cigarette.

"No." Stacey stepped around him and unlocked the driver's door. As she opened it, he touched her shoulder.

"Stacey, wait."

"Look," she said, facing him. "You have to stop following me. We agreed we needed space to figure things out. We can't do that if you keep showing up at my job." She sighed. "I need time, Joe. Okay?"

"But you're my light," he said, gazing forlornly at his Marlboro.

Stacey rolled her eyes, got in her car, and drove away.
