This is a #ZapFic50 story : a tale told in precisely 50 words
I used @MarianneWest's freewrite prompt
make you happy
"I'll make you happy," she promised.
For a moment I believed her.
Love always ends badly, my father said, once. "Trust nobody."
Suspicion and jealousy had undermined all my relationships.
I tried not to look at her phone.
If I hadn't perhaps I wouldn't be staring at these iron bars.
