Never really the end

Today's 100 words, a continuation of sorts:

Like some kind of trained pet, I was always available when you called, even after we were no longer a we, even when there was no longer anything holding the two of us together. And on that last day of the semester when your car broke down fifty miles from the college as you were traveling home, you called me, knowing I would come, and I rushed to your rescue, even though I had my own packing to do and my own plans.

It was so hard to learn to live without you when you were always there.


  1. is that a true story?
    sounds familiar, similar to my senior year...i was pathetic.

  2. Yes, it's true. This one occurred during college, and now that I look back, I see how pathetic I was, too...

  3. It sounds like a sad story. I hope there's a happier ending?

    Thanks for coming by my blog!

  4. Great thing about stories like these, they normally have an awesome ending!

    I really enjoy reading your 100 word posts! I don't get around to commenting most of the time, but keep it up :)

  5. The Golden Eagle: You're welcome. I enjoy your blog! :) (I wish I could tell you the ending was happy, but it wasn't.)

    Caitlin: I often wish that this story had had an awesome ending, but it didn't...

    Thank you for your nice comment about my 100-word posts! :)
