Dimming

"The idea’s stupid." you say, looking me directly in the eyes. "Why would you do something like that?"

I look to the floor and shuffle my feet. I hadn’t expected this from you. Of all people - you! I don’t know what to say as my heart rams against my chest. I hadn’t expected this.

"We could do this for fun, you know, just us!"

"We’re already us." Your icy glare stares me in the face. Your eyes dead like a shark’s, your fingers clenching and unclenching as you decide what to do with me and my ideas. "Isn’t that enough?"

You walk away and a quiet sob escapes from me. I close my eyes and decide that I’m going to go through with it. 

Even if you don’t want me to.
