Linking with Sacha Black for the WRITESPIRATION #124. The challenge is to write a story using the weekly theme/prompt but in just 52 words. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

The prompt for this week is – The Holiday. 


Her eyes opened to a bright sunny morning in an empty room. They had just broken up.

She left her room and walked towards the beach. Habits die hard, they say. Twenty-five years together was a long time.

She wanted freedom, not loneliness.

Won the battle? Yes. But lost the war!
