This week’s prompt: … as time passes… + 100 words
Another Broken Heart
Samantha’s mother held her hand, breathed deep.
“My Granny Gracie prayed with each phone call and mail delivery. The letter arrived with good news five years too late.”
“What happened to her, Mom?”
“She died of a broken heart. Granny held on till the letter’s arrival, but she already lay at death’s door. For some, as time passes, love fades like a summer rose, but not for her.”
“Where had great grandpa gone so long?”
“They thought he’d drowned on the Titanic, but he’d sustained a brain injury and suffered with amnesia for years. Her funeral almost finished him.”
“Another broken heart.”
