I is for . . . INDELIBLE INK

Welcome to The Blogging from A-Z Challenge April 2014! This year, I’m offering up a story – each one 100 words or fewer - for each letter of the alphabet.

Some are heartfelt, poignant, sweet. Others are…not. 

I hope you enjoy them.

INDELIBLE INK

She let him stain her on the inside.

Now, he laughs, chooses her tattoo – his name down her back, mocking the spine she doesn’t have.
