The Leap Day Door

Another one for the photo prompt, this time from Hugh…

Hugh's Views & News  

Juliet had watched all day as each woman went through the door that only unlocked itself on Leap Day.

Some came back smiling while others would come back through the door crying.

Now it was her turn and waiting on the other side was Glenn.

“Yes” was the word she heard when she proposed, but Juliet never came back through the door.

People waited for her and four years later there was still no sign of her.

The two women married each other. Juliet had stayed so she could rest in peace with her beloved Glenn.
