100WCGU Week #50 – When it rains, it pours

This week’s prompt was to include the words: the rain turned the road into a river making the word count up to 108 altogether. If you’re interested, I tried to link this entry up to the Free Write Friday piece I wrote yesterday. Here are my 108 words:

Rain
It was raining on the day she left. I had left work early and bought her flowers on the way home. This romantic gesture was long overdue. I don’t know why it took me so long to realise how lucky I was to have her. The note she left was simple,  ‘I just can’t do this anymore. Sorry.’ My gesture was too little, too late. I walked out into the road, tears streaming down my face along with the rain as it grew heavier. I sat down and the rain turned the road into a river, creeping higher and higher until I was submerged. There, I found peace.
