Match (Rewritten)

Got a lot of comments about the story, but I didn’t think I wrote it very well. Also, after publishing, I discovered that I switched from First Person to Third Person from Harmony to Match. Decided to rewrite it in First Person and tighten it up a bit.

Harmony always laughed at my jokes, no matter if it was a good or joke.

She listened to my stories with nary a complaint, nodding and smiling in amazement at the end of each one.

I thought for sure that this was a match made in heaven, she seemed perfect in every way.

Then one day Harmony vanished at a truck stop in the Midwest without warning while I was paying for fuel.

I searched high and low for her, no one remembered seeing her, it was as if she had never been there at all.

It was so strange and perplexing that I couldn’t help but wonder if Harmony was real or just a figment of my imagination.

    • I felt like I committed the cardinal sin of not reading the previous story. When I did go back and look at it, it felt jarring to me.

      I like to experiment with pov, but I don’t think it worked on this story.
