Wasn’t It Nice, She Said Into The Silence.

Wasnt It Nice She Said Into The Silence

Wasn’t it nice?” she said into the silence.  “To feel wanted, even if it was only for a little while?”  “And if it wasn’t real?” came the voice critically, scrutinising her. She squeezed her eyes shut and thought for a moment. “It was nice,” she repeated, “even if it wasn’t real.”
