Fiction Friday: I'm not one for sentimental ....


This Week’s Theme: Use this quote as the spark for anything you want."I'm not one for sentimental endings. Not this time."



At some point you have to draw a line in the sand and say 'enough is enough'. At some point you have to admit an ending is needed, necessary and you will not go on without it. At some stage you have to admit that your sanity, in fact your life is more important and move on.

"I'm not one for sentimental endings. Not this time," she sang under her breath, to herself.

Being sentimental implied a reverie, nostaligia, a sense of losing something good. That was not what it was like this time. This ending came with a sense of relief. There was nothing good being left behind, anything that she would miss. There would be no more fear coursing through her veins, like a second circulatory system, that kept her wired day and night. The undercurrent of fear would finally have it's light turned off and she could go back to a life that was normal.

There was no sadness as she said good bye, there was no need. Do you wistfully bid violence and mind torture a sweet and protracted farewell? Do you ache for it to return, you miss it so much? There was no sense of loss here, just sombre anticipation of a new beginning - finally!
