other happinesses (100 word story)

She had long suspected that love wasn’t in the cards for her.  She had even begun to accept her solitary lot in life.  Now she had confirmation via a Tarot card reading by a trusted and respected friend.

“Well, this is just the icing on the cake.” she thought.  It was just what she needed and she vowed to put thoughts of romantic love behind her and focus on other happinesses.

One could still have dreams.

One could still have passions.

“..and I still have love in my life, don’t I?” she softly asked the purring cat in her arms.

  1. Love the meaning in this one. ❤️ That’s all we really need in life.

  2. Lovely Melanie love manifests in lots of ways.

  3. Perhaps that cat is the ‘charm’?
    I think though love comes when you aren’t looking –
    and the neither the fates or the cards can control that 😉

  4. Ohhhhhhh, soooo wonderful. I love everything about it and after she accepts her life as it is, I can hear the cards reshuffling themselves even now, as the cat chuckles, deep in his throat. This is fabulous.
