Hello Readers, for this week’s Friday Fictioneers, which features a slice of bread photo from C. Kelvin Knight, I am continuing on with the story of Marcel Janco (in part 1 he was going home to rebuild).
Marcel Janco Part 2
Marcel stopped to eat on his journey back home.
He had lost his peace.
Heaviness loomed with each spoonful of soup.
Clarity was finally found when he saw a
in a slice of homemade bread.
Curiously picking up the bread he thought,
“The wrong person sucks the life out of you.
Good intentions cannot make us compatible.”
Marcel was still going back home to rebuild and
he’d always have a space in his heart for his ex.
But it is better to be single rather than suffer –
and they both deserved better.
