Strange Void

Everything that happened in the past few hours replayed itself in my head. I sat on my bed, feeling a strange, hollow void hurting my insides. That was when I realized I missed you. I didn’t think I would, after all I’d gone months without seeing you and I was completely fine. And then you came and left. Suddenly things changed.

The way you threw you head back when you laugh, or when you found my jokes funny, I wanted to relive those moments over and over again. I wanted to see you tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that, and all the days after that until I got sick and tired of you. But that wasn’t going to happen.

“Hey, you should try out my cooking sometime. You’d be surprised what a great cook I can be.”

“Yeah, well, I know quite a few girls who cook, so…”

“Am I supposed to be insulted by that?”

You laughed the kind of laughter that was infectious enough to make me laugh along with you.

“I’m just kidding. I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to try out your cooking. How bad can you be?”


I smiled by myself, alone on my bed with only memories to keep me company.

I wished you could be here, with me.

      1. You’re welcome! I’m going to be participating in a blog hop where we write about our writing process. I really like your writing and wondered if you would be interested in doing this blog hop with me?

        The idea is to talk about how you write and then choose three other authors to tag for the following week. Heather McCubbin is doing the week of June 23rd (today), and she tagged me and two others for the week of June 30th. If you choose to do it, you would send me a blurb about yourself and a photo, and I would include it in my post on the 30th to introduce you as one of the next blog hoppers for July 7th.

        If you’d like to do it, that would be great! If you’d rather not, that’s fine, too! If you could, just please let me know one way or the other by June 27th.


        1. I’m not sure if this is a big deal, but I just feel like it’s so cool to be chosen as one of the three authors, haha. But after giving it some thought in the past few days, I’ve decided not to do it. Thank you though, for thinking of me when this blog hop came up 🙂
