New Drabble

A year older; a year older in a haunted house.

Funny that Suki or Atame hadn’t noticed that only strangers turned up to their wedding.

The cancer was growing in her brain like her skull would split open. The doctors had never seen anything so rapid. They were fascinated, until they remembered themselves in front of him.

And he’d done something bad, and he’d been punished.

And there were the final vows.

And the same day on each year until he dies, he goes to that haunted house, a year older, and he watches the ceremony but he can’t touch.
