(Fiction) “I love you.”

9 05 2014

(A little continuation of my¬†“Six Word Story”)


“I love you.”

For a moment, you thought about responding with “I love you too,” or some other affectionate response.

But that would have been a lie.

You stopped loving him months before then. Telling him otherwise would have felt wrong.

So you thought the best response to this sudden declaration of love was to say nothing at all.

Instead, you left.

You left the room, you left his life, you left him out of yours.

You left both of you to wonder what “I love you” really meant, and what you should have said to him.
