Long gone

"She's no longer here," he said without looking back.

"What do you mean? She's supposed to be here, she's a part of me."

He turned just then to look at the lady in the aubergine dress.

She was so beautiful, but she needed to know the truth. She needed to know that what she is now is the extent of her lies.

"Your spirit died the day you decided to swap your baggy jeans for tiaras and silk," and with that he walked away from her, into the rain.

And there she stood, motionless except for the trickle of tears running down her face. She knew she'd remember that cursed day forever. The day she'd forgotten that Mr. Royalty-Blood was Boyfriend Number 7, not Boyfriend Number 4.
