A late entry into this week’s 100WCGU. The prompt for this week’s 100 word story is ‘Ruby’
40 wonderful years they’d been together. He’d never missed an anniversary and had no intention of missing this one. He’d planned the day in every detail. He would cook her favourite meal, the bubbly was cooling in the fridge and the card and present were safely tucked away in the cupboard where she’d never find them. Everything, or almost everything, would be perfect. Tears rolled down his cheeks as he pictured her reaction. She would smile that lovely smile of hers, but wonder what on earth was going on. Worst of all, she would have no idea who he was.
