The Smile

Almost ten years had passed, and still she woke up with a smile on her face. She looked lovingly at his side of the bed, and seeing his shining teeth stare back, knew that he was just as peaceful and content as her.

Only at the end of the day, after the sun departed, leaving her alone with dreams and memories, she managed to step back and take a long look at the water glass, which held his teeth exactly where he’d left them. She cleaned its water every day, but not once did she hear him say her name.
