Walking Away

Staring into the distance, I’m in disbelief at what has happened. How can someone you have known and trusted for so long, betray you? Turn out to be a stranger? These thoughts haunt me, and I shake my head, literally trying to rid myself from their grasp.

I consider the vast territory in front of me. It’s unknown. I have never ventured this far, nor pushed these boundaries. I lean down, tie my boots, and feeling steadfast on my feet once more, I know my course of action.

Sometimes, you just have to cut your losses and walk away.

Prompt: Daily Post Daily Prompt – grasp; and also, Carrot Ranch, January 18, 2018 – In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes boots. Whose boots are they, where do they go and what is their significance? Go where the prompt leads.

    1. Certainly shows not everyone has the same morals, that’s for sure! That would’ve been a heck of a shock for you!

      I suppose the upside is, the sooner these kinds of people reveal their true colours, the less time you spend wasted on them… thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your comment 😊

      1. yes I feel deprived 😦
        Liked your interview, there is loads of detail but got lost in the links to your favourite bloggers … found the photo guy but the middle one didn’t link to anything?

      2. Yes I don’t know what’s going on with Jael. She used to be a prolific blogger and very active and engaged with WordPress but then she has literally just disappeared and her blog along with it…around mid-November (which was after I did the interview). I miss her and hope all is ok.

  1. Yes’m I know the feeling.
    Look closely at my icon – I’m coming from a different local.
    Had to cut some losses myself at my short verse site.
    Fiction and the other seem to be OK though.
    I did two pieces this week. Fiction links at CR. 🙂
