"KILLING ME SOFTLY"

"Congratulations!" I can still remember all their happy faces as they toast for our wedding speech. It was the perfect day of my life. I was so happy. Finally, I am married to the love of my life. I would still choose him over any other guys. He was the perfect man. We bought our own house, a car, adopted a dog and even talk about our future babies. We had a perfect life. Everything was perfect. But all of that are gone now. He's gone. I can still remember how it all happened. Everytime I close my eyes, I can still see his face as he looked at me before the car crashed. He smiled at me and said, "I love you...". My heart crushed everytime I remember that night. I woke up in hospital bed 2 days after, I saw my parents by my side, I asked for my husband. They won't tell me. I insisted on seeing him. Tears ran down from my eyes as I saw him lying in a coffin in our house. "No..." That's all I can say. I convinced myself that this is just a horrible nightmare. I wanted to wake up...I wanted to wake him up. I can't help but cry. Every night, I would still wait for him to get back home from work, cook his favorite dish and wait for him in bed. Everytime I close my eyes, I can feel him hugging me, telling me to be strong and live my life. But I can't...I felt incomplete. I can't help but ask God why. Why would He give me the life that I wanted then take it back just like that? I was so lost. I felt suffocated and worthless. I miss him...and it's killing me softly.

A great content @aboulart by the way do you have a byteball?

a nice little short story about yearning and missing someone! i can see why you were inspired to write such things from the illustration...

good luck in the contest !

Thank you @veryspider. Actually, it wasn't that hard to come up with such story because of the illustration. Even I got really upset and sad while writing, it's like, I am the woman on the photo. Heheh.
But I really hope that @vermillionfox liked the way I wrote the story and consider my entry. :)

My heart breaks for this character. What a beautifully written story about the pain one experiences when they lose their other half.

Thanks for your appreciation on my work @vermillionfox :) Will try my best and luck for your next week's contest :)
