Ever in Love

Prompt: what about love? by in_the_blue. 100 Word Stories

I wanted a plethora of quick drabbles. This is one of the few pieces that didn’t look liked I crammed a short into a flash. It’s also the first finished prose snippet of the world. Yay.

“Do you ever think you’ll fall in love?” Ever asked, careful to sound casual.

Jaydn didn’t answer at first. She was too focused on testing the heft of his spare parts. Ever wondered why she had to look so at home in his sector of the space station in his shop of metals, alloys, and cast-off space station components; why perfect perched up on his desk, ignoring him often as not. She bought his goods to help her train in mirroring—not for him.

“I am in love,” she said bluntly, grinned and tossed him the bars. “I’ll take them.”
