He looked at the college reunion invitation one more time. It brought back an avalanche of memories. No matter how hard he tried to dismiss his thoughts, they kept going back to her. He still remembered her vividly, her big brown eyes, the mole on the side of her upper lip, her smile, the way she played with her hair when she was thinking, everything.

He remembered the times when they were madly in love with each other. He remembered the first awkward kiss, the promises, the shared dreams.

He also remembered the accident, the screech of the tires, the shattered glass and waking up in a hospital. The doctors had said that a side of his face has been irreparably damaged and there is very little that they could do about it. He still recalled the look of horror on her face when she first saw him like that. That one look had made him lose faith in love. He had not loved anybody like that again.

He tore the invitation card and threw it in the bin and buried back the memories which had resurfaced.


  1. Oh, yikes. She couldn't get over that? I'm sure his face healed up. Maybe not as good as before, but not horrifying.

    1. Well, love can be shallow sometimes. Thanks for stopping by Liz :)

  2. She couldn't have loved him much. Cool flash.

    Best of luck for the rest of the challenge,
