21. Writing Prompt – The Most Embarrassing / Silence

Today’s story is another Drabble (100 word story). I don’t have the brain power for much more. The writing prompts were: the most embarrassing and silence.


He betrayed me in a crowded room. When I finally learned his truth, the first question to draw blood from my numbing heart wasn’t how he could accept another’s affections or even why he let me live as an oblivious fool. I only wondered why they stayed silent, those supposed friends who had witnessed the sordid event but responded only with a silence born not of maliciousness but apathy. The most embarrassing, mortifying, soul shriveling moments in life that leave us curling into ourselves aren’t the ones people laugh at. They are the ones that no one cares enough to.


Stay healthy out there!
