He opened the door, seeing her sitting at the couch scrolling through her phone .
He gulped & took a deep breath ,
“Hey” he said quietly , She looked up at him with blank eyes .
“Can we talk ?”
She just looked back down at her phone .
“About yesterday .
I …. I .. Want to .. I guess .. I was wrong .”
She sighed & stood up ,
“I’m really not in the mood to talk”
She grabbed her coat & shrugged it on.
“Look , I’m really sorry for the outburst”
“I’m going for a walk .Don’t wait up .”
& then she was gone .
When the door again opened again six hours later , he shot up from his seat & heard a few thumps .
He walked to the hallway & saw her flumbling with her shoes, trying to remove it .
Obviously , She is drunk .
“Where have you been .?”
He asked .
“Out” she replied .
When she realised she wasn’t going to win against the shoes , She just let her head fall back on the wall and took a deep breath .
“Let Me help you.”
He moved towards her but she raised a hand .
“You’ve done enough helping .
“Then she stood up , one feet bare & askew “I’m tired of you helping me ”
“Can we have this conversation when you’ve sober .?”
“No , you wanted to talk .
We’ll talk now . Now is all you get ”
He looked at her , looked into her eyes & saw the determination in it , But most of all , he saw the hurt that he put in there .
“You are an asshole . You think that whatever you are doing to not hurt me is going to work when it won’t .! You still hurt me ! ”
“I’m sorry ”
He whispered .
“That’s also what you’ve said last time . Aren’t you tired of apologizing .? ”
He kept silent .
“Well , I’m tired of hearing you apologize & I’m so tired of forgiving you .”
Then comes the tears .
“I’m just really tired of every thing ”
She fall down to the floor & sobbed .
He walked towards her , falling down to his knees in front of her .
He reached for her hands & pulled her close to him .
“If you want , you can rest .
Just tell me .
I’ll let you go . If you want .”
She gripped his shirt & pull him to her .
“No.. please don’t let me go.”
He smiled a bit & held her ” then I won’t .”
