Never Apart Until Then. (A Flash Fiction short by Raymond Daley) (c) 18/10/12

We had run together but it hadn’t been fast enough. The last couple left.
And then the ray hit her. And she fell to the ground, her fingers wrenched from mine.

As she faded out of existence I was desperate to hang on to every last moment, hoping it wasn’t in fact the last moment.

As she started to fade I realised she was trying to say something I couldn’t quite hear or understand.

I spent the eternal agony of our final seconds together trying to comprehend.

And then she was gone.

***

And I had a true moment of clarity. I knew what she’d whispered.

“It’s okay,” she’d said. “You don’t exist.”

THE END
