THE LAST DAY OF THE DRESS
The mustard frock with its dulled glass buttons hung askew on a wire hanger in the upstairs closet of an abandoned house. She rubbed the sheer nylon between her two fingers – transporting herself back to the last day she had worn it.
That morning was beautiful with the sun beaming through the eastern windows of the large house. She smiled brightly at it as she drew back the heavy drapes of the bedroom.
“It’s the perfect day to die.”
She laid down on the bed, smoothing out the yellow dress so she would look pristine when he found her.
