In the Years that Followed

When Annette thought back to that night before the show, waiting with Sophie and Céleste in the dark behind the stage with her heart hammering in her chest and so many things unspoken, she wished she had done things differently.

She wished that she had apologized, that they had hugged and said that it was all right, that they were friends after all, weren’t they?

Most of all, she wished she hadn’t cut the ropes before they lifted Céleste up over the stage.

This is for Three Line Tales 239. Thanks to Sonya for running the challenge and Kazuo ota for providing the photo prompt.
