When Carol heard the words come out of Dave’s
mouth, she felt like someone had reached inside her chest
and torn her heart out.
“I love you, but I’m no longerin love with you.”
Hot tears streamed down her cheeks. It seemed
like her whole world was coming apart at the seams.
“Look, it’s not that I don’t care for you anymore.
I do. It’s just that . well you’re my best friend. I love
you. I just don’t feel that way anymore.”
She felt the air catch in her throat as she tried to breathe
through her tears. They had been through hard
times before, but she never expected anything like this.
