Writing Prompt: Long Goodbye

It’s one of those things in life that can be short and sweet, long and drawn out, sad, painful…

There have been times when I simply did not want to say goodbye. The unfriendly clock on the wall stole away the minutes like a thief, while I hovered, unwilling to tear myself away. It would have been better for everyone if I had just turned, said something friendly and went out the door, but I simply didn’t want to part ways.  There comes a point when such long, drawn out farewell are awkward, but we’ve all done it. Just lingered too long….

Write a farewell scene. See how long you can make it before even the reader feels the characters have overstayed their welcome…
