big mistake

A bit of a flush crept into his cheeks the longer he remained on one knee with his face pleading earnestly.

“No,” she replied, shaking her head once.

He felt like an idiot.

      • Oh! And I PROMISE I’m not just saying this but your story was definitely my favorite in Fauxpocalypse 🙂 As always, I want more. You could write an entire book off that one family.

        Do it. Do it now. 🙂

      • Hah!
        I don’t know if I could write an entire book…
        But I am planning a follow up story to check in on the farm a couple months after we left them.

        I still need to finish my NaNo project. And I have a couple other things I’m working on.

        So much writing to be done!

        And you? How is your story coming along?

      • Hooray! I’ll take it 🙂

        It’s coming along. I actually decided to quit my dance company last week (EEK!) so I have a lot of free time all of a sudden. Hopefully, I can get it finished in the next couple of months!

      • It was, but a good one I think. 🙂 My director says I’m always welcome back which is good in case I sober up anytime soon and freak out!

      • I suppose I should say the worst in that given situation. Though arguably a tornado coming through and sweeping them both away is far worse in the long run.
        My mind is stuck on the love vs. shitty relationships…oopps.

  1. What a great description of such a truly awful moment…but perhaps Troy is right….sometimes ‘no’ might be the best answer, even if it’s completely humiliating and devastating in the moment!

    • I’ve heard of people doing that…
      I can’t fathom. I’m close with my family and friends, but I think that kind of moment is best shared with the two people making the decision.
