After a year since her husband pushed the daisies, Lavinia entered his study, the place where he would spend hours reading historic novels. She imagined him smirking at her as she entered the study with a cup of tea when they were newly married. Inside her head, she heard his pleasing voice read out the novels to her.

Closing the eyes of her debilitated face, she ran her hands through the shelf to feel something thin. She pulls it to see that it was their old wedding invitation in the very gold-embossed letters.

She sighs.

Tears fall down her wet eyes.

“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Interesting concept and execution. Would love to see this turn into a short story if you could ever find the time (Always happy to proofread btw lol). Can't say I know what true love is yet, but I do hope you are right that it never dies, for it would be the most rewarding thing of all.
