The Decision.

This is my first time at this meme....so be gentle....lol.... the prompt is in blue. There are ( i think i counted right)100 words. I'm pretty sure i'm right, cuz i had to delete one word.
And, hopefully, i did this according to the rules. My mind has a tendency to skip a rule or two sometimes, without letting me know until it's too late.
So, without further ado.....
i am linking this to........

Saturday Centus - Week 12


The decision was made. No turning back.
AnnieLee, sitting next to me, was rambling on about the past.
"Do you remember the promises's.....?" "Blah blah blah was all i heard. I was thinking, driving six hours is a long time on the road. Six hours spent singing car-aoke and taking in the picturesque scenery, but mostly reminiscing about the good old times.
But those days were long gone and my mind was in a different place now. Or was it? My pulse quickened as i passed the road sign which read "Medford 27 miles". 
After 14 years of hearing the same words, non-stop, i had come to the end of my rope. Just a few more miles and i would be rid of her. Just a bit past Medford and peace will be mine. And her's. 
It is time to set her free, this ghost of love long lost. Time to put her soul to rest.
It is time to let her go.

  9. Nice and mysterious. Is Annie a person? A figurative ghost? A literal ghost? You left us wanting more, and that's good!
