She had been dancing on a balcony when the wall collapsed. Icy wind stung her limbs as she fell screaming, unwilling to die.  Her dress billowed around her hips and a warm sun caressed her face as her feet touched the pavement.

It was a different street, different town, different time, but it was familiar.  It was as if someone plucked her memories to create a new reality. Then she saw him, dead, gone from her life for three years, and she didn’t care if it was heaven, hell or a dream, she was where she wanted to be. With him.

    Great that she was where she wanted to be and not concerned by the consequences, for such a short flash you packed a lot of story into the introduction.

    A feel good ending for a terrifying beginning. Nicely done. (In the spirit of Doug’s post, you don’t need a – between sun and kissed–wordpress may have added it).

    That time space continuum can be a fickle and tricky beast.

  4. Dear Ms. T

    There’s a lot of story packed into a small space here. I love the change in time and space. Well done.

    shalom,

    From tragedy to happy ending…nice turn of events.

  6. Nice romantic touch and good use of the prompt. Guess the wall was meant to collapse!

    A new reality, or just a dream? Either way, a great concept.

  8. Hi ST,
    Somehow, you managed to pull a happy ending from a tragic event. Excellent turnaround. Ron

  9. How much better a fall is when there is the probobality of relativity in space time continuum 🙂

    Dear Ms. ST,

    What a great story. I so want this to be what happens when the wall collapses on me. Thanks for the vision.

    Aloha,

    Doug
