Nothing hurt more than silence from somewhere in Houston when she asked if he still loved her. Breath in. Breath out. Nothing more. It hadn’t been her intention to take it this far, but it had consumed her all too quickly. One day they had been friendly acquaintances and now this. Now he was in Houston not knowing if he still loved her. It was crumbling around her and she felt it fall piece by piece as she placed the phone back on its cradle. Neither of them wanted her. She wrapped her arms around herself. Rejected twice in one night.
