The Relationship – Chapter Five (a very short story)

Posted by Swati on Mar 23, 2010 in Divorce, Short Stories |

“I’ll change. I’m trying…”  He looked at her, tears slowly making their way down his cheeks.  His pleas continued.  At this moment, he was sober.

Strange, she thought, how she couldn’t really hear his specific words.  What once would have been irrelevant details to their conversations – the teeny coffee stain on her slacks, the bottle of olive oil on the counter, the cold December wind – were now main stage particulars demanding her full attention.

She nodded at him as her mind traveled back four weeks; he hadn’t come home that night.  It wasn’t the first time it had happened.  Except now, she just went to bed and slept.
