The Visit

“You’re early!” she complains.
“Better early than late, right?” I smile.
“Better early than never, I suppose.”

I’m not so sure.
Too late for never, though.
“I’ll go,” I say.
She scowls. “And come back when?”

Never say never, I’m reminded.
“Soon,” I lie.

dVerse Quadrille prompt #67 – early
