Special Day

Deirdre Morton finished adjusting her husbands tie and brushed his lapels with her hands.

"You look wonderful, dear. Just perfect for your special day."

She reminded him each year, since they first met in the coffee shop.

She brought him cherry pie.

He'd only ordered coffee.

Her hand touched his and she smiled and said, "Today is your special day."

Today she placed a flower in his pocket, kissed him at the door and told him to enjoy his day, his special, special day.

It was a beautiful day, even if it was the day he was going to die.

This one could turn into a short story in my opinion. Why is it his special day and how does he die?

Yes there is probably a short story in how a man ran into death one day on a pre-anniversary of his departure, fell in love with her, and spent a lifetime with her reminding him of his special anniversary to come one day.

1000 words or so, maybe?
