The Conversation

The Conversation by Lily Frances (a Short Story Contest entry)


"I was sorry to hear about your wife's passing."


"It's still hard for me to realize she's gone."


"I was lost when my husband died."


"How long ago did he die?"


"A year now. Although it seems longer."


"Does it get easier with time?"


"Some days are still hard."


"I still haven't packed up her clothes."


"You won't be alone for long."


"Would you like to go to lunch?"
