Smoke

Note: Catching up on some creativity, hopefully, we shall see what happens. Trying to catch up on my Daily Prompt words…

The smoke-filled room cleared for what seemed like a moment, just long enough for him to see her standing there, leaning onto someone else’s shoulder. He tried to ignore the stabbing feeling in his gut at the sight. He knew this day would come eventually and yet no matter how many pep talks and meditations he had given himself, there was the challenge in front of him.

The room filled with smoke again, and by smoke what is really filling the room these days would be more of a vapor and fruit scented smoke. It wasn’t like the old days where real tobacco smoke would fill the bar, now the new age smoking contraptions were in style. Tobacco is now bad for you, when it used to be so cool. He got one more glimpse at her and decided that he needed to face his fears.

He glided across the room with confidence and took a deep breath before reaching the circle she was in. She turned to him and had tears in her eyes, she recognized him instantly and ran into his arms. He must have had a confused look on his face because her friends standing around her, including the man she was leaning on told him that her sister had passed suddenly in a car accident and she had just found out the news, that night, in that bar. So everything he had imagined and thought was untrue, as fake as the vapor smoke that filled the room. He held her and let her cry. That was the least he could do.
