But I miss you terribly – #fridayfiction
For a moment there is only silence and the joy of having him hold her. She would like to remain like this forever, but soon he will disappear just as he always does.
He knows her thoughts, and again there is the soft sound of his laughter. “Opie, my dear sweet Opie. I don’t live here in this house. I’m alive inside your heart. I’ll go wherever you go.”
“But here in this room—”
“Look at the sky,” he says. “On nights when there’s a cloud cover overhead, you can’t see the stars but you know they’re still there.”
Ophelia smiles, realizing this is true.
“So am I,” he says. “No matter where you are, I am with you and I will be until the end of days.”
She gives a melancholy sigh. “But I miss you terribly.”
