Eight months. It had been eight months.

He had been wearing the invisible ring for eight months. Never taking it off for anything, showers, sleep. He even wore it in his dreams.

But he finally takes it off.

It had been a reminder before, two different reminders at different times.

The marks it left on his finger are deep. Who knows how long they will last.

It had been a reminder. But maybe that was the reason he needed to remove it, stow it away in forgotten drawers.

And at long last, he took it off.

Even if he doesn't want to.

At long last, maybe he will forget.
