Drabble Challenge #102

Prompt: love
LIARS, all of them!

This one...I thought she loved me. I really did.
She said so, over and over.

I did my research. I asked everyone. "It's deep inside you," they said. "You'll know it when you feel it."
Then, I felt it! Finally--my answer. The secret location.
I looked inside of her.

Gods be damned, I see nothing! Nothing but meat, and red.
It isn't there.

I hope mine is still there.

I MUST see it. I MUST.

This mirror isn't very sturdy. Hard to see...hard to...focus.

Is that it?

Is that...Love?
