Just a few sentences...

Sometime back, I saw six sentences micro fiction, and, tried my hand at it. Here's what I wrote,

Title: Love too late.

It was not an unexpected visit, yet the emotions it generated were quite world shattering.
 I was seeing him after aeons, and, all the emotions pent up within, leaped uncontrollably to the forefront.
Yet, for all appearances, I was cool and collected, that is, until he brought out the book of memories that he had been writing in since we parted.
My eyes welled up when I saw every moment of ours written down and decorated with pictures and loving words.
 I knew this was love way too late! I brushed the hair off my face and blinked back my tears, swallowed the lump in my throat and said, "It's so windy out here!"
