She Remembers

The Magpie Tales
Photo Prompt 108
She remembers...
In some ways, it felt like twenty years, but in some ways it seemed like yesterday. She remembers him every day, though the horrific pain has dissipated into only a slight jab on her worst days. He was a charming young man, good looking with a talent for making you laugh.  He had strong hands and a penchant for conquering the world. She remembers him as he was, never aging, still flexing his muscles and making her laugh. So very long ago...so yesterday.

  1. Hauntingly beautiful, Laurel.

    To answer your question about my photos, I process them in Photoshop Elements. After adjusting the exposure, contrast, cropping, etc, I often apply an action of some sort. I prefer Florabella Collection actions.

    2. Just my bad word...it's a noise I make, but don't know how to spell it.

      I wasn't trying to be mean, I just rarely get the WV correct the first time, maybe I am a robot!

      Thanks for stopping by.
