Trifextra: Combat



I fought you, tooth and nail, for a happy ending.

Battled your demons. Clashed with your doubts. Rallied against your fears.

Couldn’t win the battle.

But in the end, I won the war.


This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge in which we had to write 33 words that included the word tooth.

  1. This is excellent Suzanne though it does remind me of my own marriage. I won the war not the battle that is.

  2. Nice job exploring so completely an entire relationship in only 33 words. Your opening lines are awesome, as so many have already stated. Brilliant work, as always.
