642 – That Spark

I hope today’s prompt won’t get too confusing – I only had a small amount of space for it, and it’s a conversation about a conversation. Confusing already?Β I thought it might be! πŸ˜‰ I hope I’ve made it easy enough – the pieces from the older conversation are in cursives, the pieces from the current conversation are not. That’s not so bad, right? πŸ™‚

As always, if the prompt speaks to you feel free to borrow it πŸ™‚ If you do, please link back here so I can read through your interpretation.


The art of love


‘Yes, sweetheart?’

‘What is love?’ My parents had been the happiest, most perfect parents in the world. Their divorce had taken me by surprise, as it would take most seven-year old boys.”

Dr. Hanson nodded. “What did she say?”

“She said, ‘Sweetheart, love is complicated. It can’t be explained in a few sentences. It’s a feeling, and not something you can force.’ I’d nodded. I thought I understood.

‘Why did you and Daddy split up?’

Dr. Hanson had stopped taking notes. He simply listened.

“She said ‘Because neither of us still feel that spark. It wasn’t meant to last for us.’ I’d nodded and went back to play with my cars. Honestly, I had no idea what she was on about.”
