“And you know I love you. You know I love you enough to let you go, if that’s what you want. I just want you to be happy.”

Switches – some splashed by errant tears – are thrown and the room is silent. The bed makes a small clicking creak as it accepts the weight of another. After an endless time, the silence is broken by six small breaths.
The silence is replaced by quiet sobbing. The bed creaks again, footsteps echo, the door opens, the sobbing fades. And the silence returns.

    You ok, hon? I wasn't sure what to say to you because I'm not exactly sure what this is about.

    But lots of hugs to you, hope you're alright...

    I'm fine, girlfriend! For an unknown reason, this was just something that kind of bobbed to the surface of my brain and refused to go away until I wrote it down. So here it is. I really didn't think about what others might think of my state of mind when they read it because it wasn't about me. It was probably intended for someone; I just don't know who. But thank you muchly for thinking of me! Hugs - and kisses, of course - to you, too.

    Oh, good. I was worried, too, as I'm trying to catch up on blog reading. Glad this was fictional. :)

    I was thinking that it looks like an IM conversation.

    I mean, except for the content. ;)

    Oh, Christ.

    I read this and my heart stopped. After our last conversation I was sure this was between you and Red. Thank god it's not.

    I have had this exact conversation. It sucks.
