She slammed the door in his face.  How dare he?  

Sarah was livid!

Jake had walked out months before to be with someone else and now he wanted to come back.

What did he take her for?  A doormat?

She looked through the peephole and saw him standing there.

 He was crying and she melted.

  1. Hi Debbie,

    More than the creative piece, I was marvelling at how you managed to fit it all in so well in 55 words!! Gosh! It seems so unimaginable for me, and I think I need to take up one of these challenges to learn to reduce my word count 🙂

    Coming to the post – I don’t think a majority of people would take such a person back. But, women are generally soft hearted and tend to melt faster. A lot depends also on their situation, and if they are ready to really get back together and give each other a second chance, though it’s seldom done and seldom works out.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

  2. Hi Debbie

    Oh what the heck, one more chance! Only joking! But how many people really do let someone comeback. If one is only boyfriend and girlfriend, I would hope they moved on by the end of month one. If engaged, no way by the end of one week. If married, well that would depend on how many years, what lead up to the break up, who was really to blame. Counseling would be in order. Very complicated.
