Joining Sunday Photo Fiction for another 200 word challenge. Here is the picture to inspire and my story starts below
The End of a Love
The fireworks lit up the sky. Gorgeous arrays of Reds, Whites, and Blues. But Amanda wasn’t thinking about the fireworks, she was thinking about her relationship with Gregory. She had tried to make things work between them, really she had. But despite the similarities between them and the fact that they both enjoyed the types of things there just wasn’t that spark that she was looking for. Amanda felt Gregory’s arm slip around her shoulder and she let them sag as the heavy weight of how to tell him what she was thinking hit
“Amanda, there’s something I’ve been meaning to talk to you about.” Gregory said interrupting her thoughts.
“I don’t know how to tell you this but I’ve been thinking that maybe we just aren’t quite the right match for each other…. I mean I’ll always think of you as one of my best friends, but I think maybe we’d be happier with other people.”
Amanda could only nod with a nostalgic tear in her eye as Gregoy leaned in and gave her one last kiss, for old times sake…. But she knew it was truly over between them.
