June drabbles - 26

“I've seen the light,” said Jen.

Mike looked up, his knees crunched under the desk, arms hugging the wall. “I thought I asked you to switch it off.”

“Yeah, but you’ve not seen...”

“Don’t want to neither.”

Rain dripped, sea-water sipping the shore. Their dead tree melted in the heat. “It’s beautiful Mike.”

“I’m sure it is, but the world was beautiful too, once upon a time.”

“So what?” asked Jen.

“So turn off the light and save some energy. Maybe one day the world’ll be lovely again.”

“Like me?”

Mike hugged her tight and they turned out the light.
