The Day The World Stopped Loving


DJ Cowdall



‘One of these day you’ll find out how it feels.’ Susan said, trying hard not to cry. For the first time she felt able to appreciate the depth of her feelings for Alex; unfortunately it was terrible timing, as he had just decided he didn’t want to see her any more.

‘Come on Susan.’ He said cheerfully. ‘It’s not the end of the world. We just weren’t right for each other.’

Susan stood a moment, trying her best to be reasonable, to see it from his point of view; it was difficult, when it involved ending their relationship.

‘We’ve been together for over a year, think of all that we’ve done together, all the good things, the fun and so much shared.’ By now the tears were sliding down her soft cheeks as she cried, something she hadn’t done since the death of her Nan.

Alex looked at her, trying to think of something to say that would console her. He thought about his own feelings; she had been fun, the time together had been OK, but he couldn’t quite focus on how he really felt about them splitting up. Right now he felt guilty, because in seeing her so upset at the possibility of him not being there for her, he felt better. Deep down he knew it was immature, but still he couldn’t help himself.

‘Why not wait a while, and see how things go, see if we can improve things for both of us?’ Susan asked, wiping tears with a handkerchief, trying not to break down altogether.

‘Susan.’ Alex said, louder than he had intended. She looked at him wide eyed, surprised by his sudden outburst.

‘I’m sorry, but the fact is our relationship has been getting in the way of the time I have for kick-boxing. And you’re always nagging at me for watching too much football.’

To Alex this was fair, he had spoken his mind and thought as hard as it was being honest, at least she would appreciate that honesty.

Susan looked at him stunned, her face mirroring her feelings now. ‘How dare you!’ She said angrily, before slapping his face. She started to walk away, then ran, breaking down into heartbroken sobs.
