He stepped into the room and saw her. It had been so long. She looked up and smiled as he sat down opposite her.

The talk was stilted, the atmosphere tense, unlike the long hours of past nights spent staring into each other's eyes and laying their very souls bare upon an altar of frenzied passion. Their hands reached out, stopped short by the glass partition.

"Time's up," the guard called.

He stood to go, then turned back and smiled weakly.

"Only eight years, six months, and 2 days to go, baby."

A lone tear trickled slowly down her cheek.

    Thank you so much. I don't know if I can keep up with such talented writers as I've already seen here, but maybe I can carve out my own little space.
