#12 Lace

Title: Gossamer Memories
Author: Annjej76
Words: 100
Rating: PG (one bad word)
Character: Lewis Nixon
_____________________________________________________________________

He really hates the sight of lace.

Lace reminds him of the house in Landsberg and rich Nazi’s wives.

Lace reminds him of runners on tables in his parent’s home back in New Jersey.

Lace reminds him of Kathy’s veil at their wedding, the one handed down to her from her grandmother.

Lace reminds him of his daughter’s baptismal gown.

He’ll never forget those dead men in Landsberg who never see their daughters and wives dance in lace.

He drinks trying to forget. He drinks so he can be numb to the sight of lace.

Yes, he fucking hates lace.

You had me confused there for a moment, since you filled the prompt twice.

I think I like this better than the other - simply because of the drama. It is more, well, wartime.

Sorry about the confusion. The prompt inspired two drabbles. One funny and one serious. I'm not sure if this is allowed or not.

Don't be. And the more the merrier, so I wouldn't say it's not allowed... :D

Poor Nix, plagued by so many unhappy memories...and all connected by one similar thread (no pun intended--symbolism is love, and I loved this drabble).
