[100 Words is a story in 100 words or less, based off the word in the title.]
The worst part is accepting the reality of the situation. That you cannot change it no matter how much you will it, that you are stuck with it even if your mind tries so damn hard to create fantasies where it didn’t happen.
And then there is the flip side to the happy fantasies. The sad fantasies, the ones where you cannot see the light and joy in the world, but you see what is lacking. What lacked for you. You see it being repeated, again and again, with no way to stop it.
You didn’t stop it last time, how can you stop it again?
