The Secret Door

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

I had shut it tight and never gone back to it again. After all the pain and misery that I had gone through, I could not bring myself to trust another woman. I locked my heart in a box and kept it away from the world. Being cynical was not the answer I knew, but my wounds were too deep to ever heal. Then one fine day, she came in like a breath of fresh air. Her laugh brought out a different me and I never realized when she dug a pathway and found a secret door to my heart.

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 4th December 2015.

  2. Dear Soumya,

    I love your use of the prompt as it not being a literal door. I like the way it ended on a hopeful note.

    Shalom,
