Rejection Can Be Hard

“Yes” she said tearfully as she kept the bouquet of flowers in a vase. She waited for the door to close behind her before cracking a satisfied smile. She looked over at the condolence letters, some still in their envelopes.

She had thought that he would be different, but he was just like most of them. He rejected her because she wasn’t pretty enough. She wasn’t easily defeated though. She worked harder to impress him and after marrying him decided to send him to a place ​where he wouldn’t be able to reject anyone.

She put on another sad face as she went to answer the knock at her door.

  1. Reluctantly she will come out of her shell after her loss (i.e. freedom) and find someone she will be happy with. (p.s Strike my name off that list!) I have not met anyone quite like that but who knows?


  2. I dunno what it is about these flowers that has caused so much mayhem! Methinks she will never find the right guy…


  3. Dunno if she should have offed him. Should have divorced him for the money. As they say, Marriage is grand, but divorce is 100 grand. Well written tale.
