The Familiar Face

Where we aren’t seeing each other

Today’s random word is face; the first sentence is “I heard a frantic pounding”

I heard a frantic pounding on the wall from the room next door. Then, the heavy panting and loud moaning, the kind that questioned my decision, yet my feet stayed frozen, and my heart broke into pieces.

“I promise I won’t go out again alone! So, please let me out of this room!”

My tears rolled down my cheeks, a drop at a time at first, then more steadily. I wouldn’t be able to see that familiar face… not after the last time!

“Please! I can’t stand this small room!”… the banging at the door…

Not after the last time…

Thank you, Nancy Oglesby, for a terrific challenge!
