“It had to be you… (microfiction in 160)

Wonderful you – it had to be you.”

She rummaged through the storehouse of memories in her mind.

Had he known how much she had loved him maybe he …


What do you think he would have done had he known how much she loved him??


Thanks to Monkey Man for the weekly challenge and delight of writing short stories. Please join us and give 160 a try.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. He would have stopped smoking.

    I know…boring, but it was the first thing that came to mind.
    Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160, it is always an honor to have you.


  2. hmmm…without knowing the background hard to say…perhaps he would stay…perhaps he would run to her…perhaps he would be too scared to do anything…and perhaps it is best she never did…or perhaps the new story is more the fiary tale…


  3. Oh boy there are so many possibilities within this question. Possibly he would have noticed her more, held her more, loved her more and saved his affections for ONLY her!


  4. Intriguing question. My first reaction is that it falls into the category of “if only…” To me, those are usually painful and generally useless words.

    They remind me of the old saw my dad loved to say to me whenever I said “if only… (fill in the blank).” He’d reply, “If only my aunt had wheels, she’d be a trolley car.”

    Thanks for visiting my entry, my friend.


  5. maybe he wouldn’t have succumbed to her uncontrollable rage when she caught him cheating with the floosie next door. Now, all she has is the memories while she awaits trial for 1st degree murder…okay so I turned maudlin into macabre!


  6. Ah that feeling of ‘lost opportunity’ like grains of sand slipped through her fingers… sigh..
    Don’t you wish in the memories of our mind there was a rewind button like on the DVD player and we could reverse life back to those moments in time to be with those we hold dear and play them over again and rewrite the times that were not so good, to something better.
    In the meantime I will send you a bottle of love potion #9 and my ‘genie’ bottle.

    Have a wonderful week —
