Interlude Stay-Scenes of a Breakup
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, misunderstandings can cause heartache. It is the hope in the ones we love, the belief in the relationship we thrive for, that will illuminate and correct the problem in the end. Musical Selection:"Stay" by Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko
He watched her as she approached slowly, her fingers twisting and untwisting around and into each other, bottom lip pouting and trembling, a solitary tear resting on the tip of her lower lashes. This was the hardest thing he'd ever done in life, but it had to be done. As much as he wanted to grab her up and hold her in his arms, he had to back away and let her figure out what she wanted with her future. He could no longer pretend he didn't care as much as he really did. Stifling his urges, his passion, his love, was breaking his heart. He had to call the relationship off. ~
Carmella heard the words Franklin was saying, but couldn't comprehend. She could see his lips moving, but her mind was blocking out her ability to put the sentences in any logical context. What was he saying? She shook her head to clear the fog, but it didn't help. She no more wanted to hear him than she wanted to hear what he was saying. Was he really saying they should break-up?
"What are you saying?" Her voice came out in barely a whisper. "I'm saying this is not working for me. I can't keep coming here day in and out and not know how I will find you. What frame of mind will you be in? Will you love me or will you push me away? I can't take it anymore. I can't be the toad you kick around because you aren't ready to have a prince in your life. I've been telling you this for days now. Call me when you're ready to stop thwarting my every effort to make this relationship work. Carmella watched as he drove off slowly. So slow, she could have run after him and stopped him. She could have reached out and grabbed the door handle before he left the drive. When the brake lights brightened she released her breath, so sure he was returning, only to catch her breath again at the sight of a squirrel darting safely between the tires as he drove out of sight. She pressed her palm to her chest in the hope of steadying her aching heart.
Tears rolled down her face as she whispered softly to the empty sky, "I want you to stay."
