Prompt for August 24, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The glass was falling from her hand. She could see it falling in slow motion as her mind whirled faster into the abyss in front of her. Her editor had sent her to this bar to investigate dating habits in the digital age. She had fought, hard, but with full-time journalism jobs becoming scarce she couldn’t fight too hard. Reluctantly she had agreed and asked her best friend Rebecca to come with her because a wingman was still a requirement. They had been standing near the bar, waiting for the room to get busier, when a voice had whispered in her ear “I’ve been waiting for you, Jesse.” Turning she had seen dark blue eyes, eyes that she had seen on only one other person: her best friend Daniel. But, he had died in her arms five years ago.
