Flash Fiction: Inflation

‘He’s still in love with you. He wants you to know that. Whatever happens, you can count on him.’
Felicity smiled. ‘Thank you so much. You can’t imagine what it means to me.’
‘Oh, don’t thank me, my dear. I’m simply saying what he told me.’
‘All the same, without you, it wouldn’t be possible.’
‘Indeed. That’s what I’m here for.’
Felicity dipped into her handbag. ‘Here.’
The smile was a little pained. ‘I’m afraid it’s gone up. It’s been a year since he passed. More difficult to contact, you understand.’
Felicity hesitated a moment. Then she nodded. ‘Of course.’

In response to Matt’s Flash Fiction Foray, which had as its prompt the song Still in Love With You, by Electro Velvet. Yes, Matt is back! Over on my other blog (still there but now more or less defunct), I was a regular participant, so I’m delighted to be able to join in again. Good to see you, Matt!
