This is a flash fiction challenge (stories in 100-175 words or less) and each story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Therefore, no serial (continuation) stories. They become too complicated for our readers.

Well, not stated, so much as screamed impotently watching as he just wandered absentmindedly back into the garage. He had already dismissed her or simply forgotten she even existed.

She was just so stubborn and he was just so forgetful. Long ago they had both forgotten how to live.
