Missing moments by Riham Gharib

Prompt: coming undone | Word count: 1200 words | Genre: romantic drama

I kept my head throughout the dreadful fire that broke out in my building. I still go stiff whenever I smell burned wood, but that day I did what I had to do, and when the fire was contained, I resumed studying, there was an important exam the day after and I couldn’t let myself be sidetracked. I didn’t shed a tear when you left me and your son with nothing at all, I actually went to a wedding that day, it was my first assignment, and believe it or not, I handed my clients an amazing album of their memories.
I remember these things now because I am not that person anymore. Today I came undone.
