She trusted him. He betrayed her.
Her signature beside the pen. Divorced.
Life is better without that prick.
He’s just a cantankerous, old fart.
Even still, she still loves him.
She misses him. Freedom is difficult.
Written for Six on the Sixth.
As is my occasional style, these stories are individual chapters in a longer story, but I hope they stand on their own at the same time.
As always, my six word stories are presented in a way in which I hope they each stand on their own, but when combined create a longer tale. If you’re joining in on the six word fun, you do not have to follow the same format. The only rule is that each of your stories is exactly six words in length.

Her laugh lit up his life.
Soul Mates (Tree)

Living a Lie (Water)
Her deceit flooded their happy life.
Hoping for the Best (Eggs)
Despite betrayal, he walked on eggshells.
Time Doesn’t Always Heal (Motor)
Fueled by rage, he snapped.
The sun rose over their corpses.
