SFAP Goof!

I’ve had a rough week, so I must apologize for goofing up the SFAP.  I left out one of the entries and I still don’t know how I did that since it’s in the correct place.  I had spent so long trying to repair formatting issues, I was frustrated and just hit the publish too early. 

So, I’m going to leave this one up over the weekend in a post of its own.  Sorry Laura.

If I stare long enough, I can almost see his outline through the mottled panes. A palm. Fingertips. Wishful thinking.

“You really shouldn’t miss him. He was never good to you.”

Amber light traces his outline, and I wonder if he could really be so far away.

“Mom?”

Resting his face in his hands, he closed his eyes and pretended I wasn’t there. I’m not. Or, I am, but he’s not resting his face in his hands anymore.

“It looks like rain tonight.”

“Mom, is that you?”

Has it only been three days?

“I don’t know why you would date a man like that in the first place. I wonder if he ever cared about anyone in his life.”

It was his heavy eyes. A look that took a swim in your soul. That didn’t require sincerity.

“What were you saying?”

So beautiful.

“It’s ok. You don’t have to say it.”

My homme fatale.

I refocus my gaze, and the ghost disappears.

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
