Flash Fiction #208 – Remember Me

Levi and Ellie sit close on the sofa.

After the funeral, her brother-in-law is the only company Ellie can bear.

Her husband’s alive in his brother’s stories.

In his words. In his voice.

In his smile.

Ellie apologizes when their legs touch.

She looks up,

but it’s her husband’s face she sees.

“It’s okay,” says her husband. “I’m here for you—whatever you need.”

They hug.

They kiss.

They embrace.

Ellie knows she’ll wake up in her brother-in-law’s arms tomorrow.

But for tonight,

she makes love to her husband one last time.
