Prompt: Memory

* * * * *

"You have to help me! I can't bear to remember this!" The young woman dropped to her knees, clutching the hem of my skirts, franticly attempting to keep me from walking away.

I bent down, took her chin in my hand, and looked into her tear-filled eyes. "Why, child? Why are you so desperate to forget? You are young yet; memories fade with time. Mayhap the lesson learned is one best left in your mind and heart."

I pulled my skirts from her hands and walked away, not looking back though her wails began to echo through the streets.

I'm still not 100% sure about this one - I may go in and edit it later.
