Prompt Drabble #2

Prompt: "Write a paragraph where a character apologizes without using the words 'sorry', 'regret', or 'apologize'."

            “Have you ever done something, and then later you just feel… pain over whatever it was you had done?” He asked her quietly. “When I look back on what I did to you, to your family. That’s how I feel. Pain. Sadness. But I don’t know what it means. I’ve never encountered anything like this before.” She looked at him with eyes hardened by the years of horror she had experienced because of him. “What you’re feeling is called regret. And what you are asking me for is forgiveness. But I’m not ready to forgive you. I don’t know if I ever will be.”
