She was there.
Standing in the middle of my dark hallway, her back to me. Somehow, even from this distance, I could feel her warmth. The pure joy that she radiated was soothing in a way I haven’t felt in a long time.
It had been 7 years since I last saw her. Since I last felt those soft arms wrap around my waist, or felt her hair tickle my nose, or saw that beautiful smile. 7 years since I lost the only piece of love I ever felt.
Then, just as quickly as she appeared, she was gone.
