SoCS — My Two Cents Worth

She sent me a letter.

I could smell her scent on the stationery. It brought back a lot of memories. Some happy. Most painful.

She had taped a penny to the paper. Beneath the taped penny she wrote, “This is what our life together was worth. One red cent.”

I guess I deserved that for the hell I put her through during our marriage.

I sent her a letter. The stationery was unscented, just like me.

I taped two pennies to the paper. Beneath the taped pennies I wrote, “Here’s my two cents worth. You got as good as you gave.”

She wasn’t the only one who went through hell during our marriage.


Written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. Dan Antion is standing in for Linda this week and he has given us “cent/scent/sent,” and asked us to use them in any form we like. We can use one, two, or all three of them.
