I'm going to do the Stories in the Mind linkup again!
It's been a while because I still get so very, very nervous about posting my own work. (I know I shouldn't compare mine to other people's, but I can't help it, I do. And it's not generally a comparison in my favor. *smirk*)
This week's prompt is: Trust.
Word count: 118
“Rose,” Chris closed the back door and sat down beside her on the steps. “I talked to your dad like you asked. He said it wasn't his story to tell, and if I wanted to hear it, I’d need to have you explain." he hesitated, "Can't you tell me what happened?”
He waited for her to say something but she seemed to be looking at something far away in her memories. Finally he laid his hand over hers and whispered, “Trust me.”
It seemed that Rose suddenly let her walls down. He could almost see her taking them apart, brick by brick. When she was done, she sagged a little and sighed. “It’s my own fault.”
And there we go!
As an aside, I'm sort of in love with this song. It makes me ache inside a little bit. :)
I hope you all had a lovely Wednesday!
Cheers and God bless.
