The Saving Grace

with 14 comments

She’d dozed off, she didn’t know when. Perhaps, the Jack Daniels previous night had been too much.
She slid the curtain to let in just a glimmer of sunlight.

In the balcony, he leaned against the parapet.
She offered a silent gratitude for his presence.

If not for him, she would’ve given up long back.

  3. Why do I find this piece bittersweet?

    Sanctity of the relationship vs. sanity. Looks like sanity lost the race.

  4. Having enjoyed the story, at this moment, I would like to act very finicky and blame the 55 restriction on making the last sentence seem grammatically weird – “she’d given up” … isn’t it supposed to be ‘would have’, or something? πŸ˜›

    • Edited πŸ™‚ And it is still 55!

      I myself wasn’t so convinced with the she’d but let it be.

  5. Request: Can I have longer posts on similar..
    Not a critique (quite the contrary): Your posts leave me wondering what happened after or did something happen at all.

    • Your request shall be granted!
      I’ve been contemplating on short stories but somehow find myself stuck at 55 πŸ™‚

  6. Somehow I did not find the mushy feeling here πŸ™‚

    What I concluded after the 55 was that she looked out – saw that the cook/cleaning guy/handyman had come back from his vacation and felt happy πŸ˜›

    See this is why you need to write short-stories πŸ˜€
