365 Prompt: October 27 2017


It was an unending battle that I replayed over and over in my head every single day.

Last night it had finally come to a head in my dreams.

I’d wished for it to happen more than once and then I’d stopped thinking about it.

And that’s why I saw him.

We stared at each other through the hordes of rushing people and it was like everything else ceased to exist. I thought he would ignore me, but instead, he held up a hand to tell me to wait and he ran over.

He handed me a small, pink face washer I’d left at his place what seemed like eons ago.

We suddenly didn’t know what to say to each other.

I broke the silence first as he stepped away.


He grabbed my hand and kissed me so fast I didn’t know what hit me. I found myself kissing him back and I knew we were standing in public and yet I didn’t seem to care.

Then my brain clicked into gear.

“I don’t want to do this here,” I said.

After all this time and all the things we’d both said, nothing seemed to matter right now.

I think we’d both realised that we couldn’t go back to the past; we just needed to learn from it.

When I woke up though, I had to wonder: what WAS the truth in all of that? Why was I dreaming of him? And was I still haunting his dreams?

I wondered if it was a sign of future happenings.
