Not In Your Line of Vision

February 15, 2020

 

Sitting on the edge our bed, you stared at your iPad. 

 

   'What?’ you said. 

 

   ‘I said…can you give me a lift?’ 

 

   ‘Yeah, yeah. Just don’t hold me up.’

   I paced around. Should I say something? Better not. My intestines churned; lava rose behind my eyes. I grabbed my shopping bag, slamming the door behind me. Deep breaths. The cool air slowed my pulse. Raising my arm, I looked at my watch. I should have caught the bus.

‘So…where do you want to go?’ Your attention was fixed on the rear-view mirror.

 

   ‘Not far…to the…’

 

   ‘Where?’

 

  ‘To the corner of High…’

 

  ‘Just tell me…Fuck you too!’ You glared at the driver in the adjacent car.

 

  ‘Let me out here…’ I turned my head away, my cheeks tear-stained. 

 

Did you see me on the day we said, ‘I do’?--Do you see me now?
