Five Sentence Fiction – Accident


She was dying, and soon – there was no more maybe about it. He sat at her bedside as always, just watching her sleep, the decades of their life together playing out on her slackened face like projections on parchment. He saw it often, the day they’d met, and the cars that had crashed together in front of his bike, the drivers going way too fast through campustown. Her bike had crashed into his, too, at that busy intersection, and it all began. There, on the corner of First and Park, where two lives ended and two more were joined.
