Superhero

Their bed once warmed by passion stands empty and cold. His chilling voice echoing through the room, ‘you are not good enough.’

Tangled in a thin blanket, she retreated to the couch, curling tightly around her heart, protecting what faint beating of life still remained. Crippled by his betrayal, she felt herself slowly slipping away.

Hours bled into days. Sweet dreams turned sour. Touching her face where his kisses once caressed, a tear slid down her cheek.

Rising from the couch, she draped the blanket around her shoulders like a superhero’s cape. Flying free from her pain, she was invincible.

The 100 Word Challenge, a writing prompt created by Velvet Verbosity, takes a single theme to tell a story in only 100 words ~ no more, no less. This week’s theme is ‘Invincible.’
