The emotions that cracked through her thoughts sent shivers of excitement down her back. They caused her to inexplicably shiver, and set the hairs on her arms on end. Her stomach tightened as if it were being pulled into a knot, and yet it was a pleasing pain.
“How could this be described as ‘fluttering butterflies’?” she thought.
He had walked back into her life for the briefest of moments, and yet the months apart instantly faded as she basked in his return. There was no hiding her joy at seeing him, were not etched all over face, then her body language gave definite clues.
She twirled the ends of her hair playfully, whilst standing in such a way as to emphasise her bosom, and so as to appear sultry and available should he be inclined.
He hadn’t yet said a word, and already she wanted him. Flashbacks of the things he did to her, her to him, showed themselves like a montage to their past love life. Sex so amazing it left them panting in a sweaty cuddle unable to move. God she wanted those days back. She wanted him back.
“Hey!” she said, smiling broadly. “I’ve missed you….well us actually. I’ve missed us.”
“Me too,” he said. Her smile broadened further. “I was wondering….”
“Yes!” she interrupted. “Whatever it is, yes!”
She flung her arms around him, burying her head into his chest. Deeply she inhaled his scent taking in the memories of comfort it brought back to her. He held her loosely in return.
“I was wondering…” He paused before gently pushing her away from the sanctuary she had taken within his embrace. “I was wondering if you’d agree to a divorce.”
Once again he had shattered her hopes, her dreams. Tears of sadness replaced the smiles of joy. The knot in her stomach now ached to the point of doubling her over as her cries threatened to rip out her very soul. She slumped to her knees before him, broken and forsaken.
“I’m sorry,” he said turning away.
Through pained tear filled eyes she watched as once again he walked away from her leaving her shattered and heartbroken.
