On A Night Like This 

I push back the curtain and smile, the sky is cloudless and the bright light keeping me awake, a glistening full moon. I glance at my watch, in just a few hours Andrew will be home, back from his stint in the army. I wrap the duvet around me, it won’t be long before I feel his arms around me keeping me warm and safe.

Hours later Andrew isn’t by my side, he never made it back. Car accident, they said. I struggle to understand. How can you lose control of your car when the driving conditions are just perfect?

  1. a sad ending, not what I expected.

  2. A sad tale. The most likely cause of the accident would probably be tiredness. Driving at night, especially between midnight and five a.m., is hugely more risky than at other times of the day.

  3. Oh, sad story, but very believable as things like this do happen.

  4. Dear Bettina,

    Sadly there are stories out there like that. Well done.



  5. Untimely death and the one who loved him most is left to grieve. Tragic story. Jilly, Sugar on the Bee.

  6. Oh no. Such a sad tale. Nicely done.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
