Him: Is this how things are gonna stay between us?

Her: What else did you expect?

Him: It’s been five months already. Can’t we at least try to talk?

Her: It was five years. Five Fucking Years that you threw away, right into the gutter. I gave you everything, I was OK with all your shit as long as we were together, you cunt. I begged to stay with you, and now you wanna talk?

Backspace

3:00 AM

Him: I’m sorry

5 milliseconds of waiting

Her: For?

Him: What I did. What I put you through. You deserved better.

Her: Do we really have to go through this again?

Her: You did what you did. There’s no going back from it. It happened, I dealt with it. It’s fine

Her: Unless you have something better to talk about, I guess we’re done here

Him: I understand

Her: No, you don’t.

Her: Night

Him: Night

Monday

10:00 AM

Her: I know it’s probably too late for this. But I’m sorry for the way I behaved. Whatever we had, whatever happened, I had no right to make you feel that way. I hope you forgive me. It’s ok if you don’t reply. I’ll understand.

4:00 PM

Him: Always had a knack for melodrama, didn’t you?

Him: It’s ok

5:00 PM

Her: Thanks. How’ve you been?

Him: You really wanna know?

Backspace

Him: Miserable, lonely, broken, left with no hope. But that’s not why I texted you. I know you’ll be much better off without me. I just needed to know you were fine. I mean, if we were together now, you’d be miserable too. I can’t keep putting you through this. You can’t keep being a part of my failures. You’re made for better things. I can’t keep holding you back.

Backspace

Him: Great.

Her: Awesome. How’s work and all?

Him: Oh, you know. Same old. Been looking for a new job lately. Don’t think this one’s going anywhere.

Her: Told you, you’d tire of it.

Him: Hehe. Yeah. A knack for being right too.

Her: Shut up :P

Her: Seeing anyone new?

Him: No

……………….

Sent

Her: Why? Chicks must be throwing themselves at you.

Him: I wish all chicks had a bad taste in men, but I guess you were the last one.

Her: You were good, ok. Just a little stupid and careless

Him: I was never good enough for you.

Him: You deserved better is what I mean.

Her: Don’t. Just don’t.

Her: I don’t want this conversation again

Him: Sorry

Her: It’s ok

Him: Wanna meet up sometime?

Her: You think that’s a good idea?

Him: What’s the worst that could happen?

Her: Manslaughter :P

Him: I’m willing to risk it

Her: Umm.. Ok.. :P

Him: Cool. Tomorrow? The Coffee Shop near your place?

Her: I’ll let you know

Him: Cool :D
