At Day’s End by D. Avery
“Did you see this?”
She hadn’t. She sighed, looked at him over her book.
“I know what I would spend a day with.”
“Who, really. You.”
“You are spending a day with me.” Another one, she thought. Another endless, aimless day. She tried to find her place but was interrupted again.
“I’d cherish a day with the old you.”
“Don’t you mean the young me?”
“Sure, you when you were younger.”
“So you want a younger woman?”
He looked at her uncertainly. “Just you. When you still loved me.”
She bent her head to the tear blurred page.
