I Chose a Romantic Spot


PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook

I stood under the globe of the streetlamp, looking at its reflection on the water under the bridge.  I could dimly make out the dark shadow that I knew must be me.

We had passed this way a million times before.  I had proposed to you over in that park on the far bank.  But I don’t know if I’d ever stopped and admired the city nightscape.

Not that I was enjoying it tonight.

What had gone wrong?  The moving water didn’t answer.

With one last glance down, I headed on my way.  I trust they won’t find your body.

      It does seem that there is always a high body count on the Friday Fictioneers, this time all of the bodies dumped in the river. I guess sometimes there is a very fine line between gentle regrets and desperate murder ;)
