Tiny Story #6

The 12 Hour Engagement

Something awakened in me the moment we met. Was it a romantic life force or a phantom of the past?

Things moved fast. He made my heart beat fast. He was enamored. Wanted to do things for me. He pushed for a committed relationship.

He asked me to marry him.

I said yes.

Then we got into a big, ugly 12 hour fight.

We picked each other apart. Got defensive. Tried to work through the fear. The demons from relationships past. We scared our dogs and his cats. Scared ourselves.

We broke up 5 days later.
