“You know I love you, right?” She asked.
He nodded, “I know, I know.”
She inclined her head, looking at him expectantly, “You know I care a lot about you, right?”
He sighed, exasperated. “Yes, I know.”
She then turned her head to face him straight on, staring him directly in the eyes. “Then why didn’t you call?”
She didn’t know if it was her stare or the weight of the question, but he looked down to the floor then off to his right.
“I don’t know? I just didn’t?” He answered. “I knew you would have wanted me to, I knew that much. In the moment, I knew that much, but I just didn’t do it! Would it have changed anything? Would it have?” He then turned back to look up at her, staring deep into her soul.
She just stood there. Would it have? Would I be able to do anything? Can any of us? What would I have done?
A sad smile made its way onto her face. “You know I love you, right?”
The same smile made its way onto his face as he stood up and slowly made is way over to her, enveloping her into his arms. They had nothing to say to each other, nothing that hadn’t already been said.
