You Leached Her Happiness

Fiction Shorts word of the day: Colour

By Colleen Millsteed Published about a month ago Updated about a month ago 1 min read

It’s been twelve months since you rejected her and since that day she has lived in a world of black and white.

There are days that she awakens to the dark clouds that hover over her head, over her bed, over her entire view. Days of such despair that she fights the good fight — and doesn’t always win.

Other days, she finds the dark clouds dissipate but her world is bland, unexciting, dismal all the same.

Until she met another. One that reaches out to support her, protect her, fight for her — he who brings colour back into her days.

This drabble has been written as part of the daily Drabble Drop challenge and today's random word, that must be included in the drabble, is 'colour'.

Wikipedia defines a drabble as follows :

A drabble is a short work of fiction of precisely one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful idea in a confined space.

About the Creator

Colleen Millsteed

My first love is poetry — it’s like a desperate need to write, to free up space in my mind, to escape the constant noise in my head. Most of the time the poems write themselves — I’m just the conduit holding the metaphorical pen.

    I just want to say that I really like the fact that you have double "e"s in both your first name and last name and then there are double "ll"s too. :D
