Apology

*

– Do you know him? – asked Kate looking at my pale face.

I couldn’t resist staring at him.  In white shirt and faded  jeans he looked as handsome as always.

He smiled at me and his eyes were saying “I make no apologies” even before he opened his mouth and said:

– You look so good. I knew you would be better without me.

Every single word was like a stab.

But I lied  through my teeth:

-How nice to see you again.

Part one of this short fiction is here. I  write it using daily prompts to improve my English.

A dramatic view

*

On Monday morning I met my friend Kate in our favourite French cafe. It’s our way to make Mondays more bearable.

We were sitting in the corner in cozy armchairs drinkig coffee and eating croissants and we were working on our project.  The cafeteria is small and quiet.

Someone came. I was trying to decide on photos when Kate said:

– Wow! Look at that guy. What a dramatic view!

Although it was hot summer I felt frozen when I saw him. His eyes so deep, his mouth so red, his chin so strong, his body so tempting. Attractive as he had been.

Our relationship was tragic. I loved him, he only pretended. He broke my heart and went away.
