55 - Expectations

It was unfair to have expectations. He could've been anyone. She had gone there with a single-minded purpose that made the events of that night inevitable.

Now, not so much as an email. Neutral words would've sufficed. Had the years changed her so much, or had she misremembered her youthful bravado? His silence bedeviled her.


About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words or less. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

That's harsh. Did she walk in with one set of expectations and end up with another?

It is said that your level of serenity is inversely proportionate to your level of expectation.

Expectations are resentments lying in wait (or something like that). In any case, it is amazing how the stories (memories) of our youth can be misaligned with the reality of our "now". Has been for me! Nice 55 ~ and welcome to G-Man's world. Hope to see you back again.
