Old Lady – 6

When I returned from college, to visit my folks I went around to Miss Ellis.

We’d talk of current events, situations.  She was the first I told that I had met a man and it was serious.

She didn’t say anything.

I asked her if she had been married.

“Yes, I was.  It was a short marriage.”

“Oh.”

And then I asked her what I had always wanted to ask:

“Aren’t you lonely?”

What do you think?
