#100WW — The Search

8CF57C00-AC27-49BD-AFC0-49367EBA3E09The apartment was dark when Alex walked in. He flicked on the hall light and saw his backpack, cameras, and other stuff spread on the floor just past the entryway.

Alex looked for his wife, but she wasn’t there. Then he saw the handwritten note on the backpack. He picked it up and read it.

Dear Alex,

Here’s everything that’s important to you. Your cameras and film, hiking boots, external hard drives, and some warm clothes.

Take it all and go out and explore the world. Find whatever it is you’re searching for, because whatever it is, it’s not me.

      All in the distant past, I hope.

    Oh my – how hurtful for both parties involved. To feel unloved, overlooked, or to be the one not showing the love or appreciation your partner feels they deserve or lack from you….but it’s a way to move on. What a lovely, albeit moving, story based on the image prompt. Thank you for sharing it with us and joining our community this week 🙂
