5 mins of waiting
.....he’s typing .....he’s typing ....he’s typing
Him: How’ve you been?
Him: Long time
……… she’s typing …….. she’s tying …….. she’s typing
Her: What do you want?
Him: Is this how things are gonna stay between us?
Her: What else did you expect?
Him: It’s been five months already. Can’t we at least try to talk?
Her: It was five years. Five Fucking Years that you threw away, right into the gutter. I gave you everything, I was OK with all your shit as long as we were together, you cunt. I begged to stay with you, and now you wanna talk?
……… he’s typing …….. he’s tying …….. he’s typing
Him: Just wanted to check up on you. See how you were doing
Her: I’m great.
Him: I’m fine too.

Him: I’m sorry
5 milliseconds of waiting
Him: What I did. What I put you through. You deserved better.
Her: Do we really have to go through this again?
Her: You did what you did. There’s no going back from it. It happened, I dealt with it. It’s fine
Her: Unless you have something better to talk about, I guess we’re done here
Him: I understand
Her: No, you don’t.
Her: I know it’s probably too late for this. But I’m sorry for the way I behaved. Whatever we had, whatever happened, I had no right to make you feel that way. I hope you forgive me. It’s ok if you don’t reply. I’ll understand.
Him: Always had a knack for melodrama, didn’t you?
Him: It’s ok
Her: Thanks. How’ve you been?
Him: You really wanna know?
Him: Miserable, lonely, broken, left with no hope. But that’s not why I texted you. I know you’ll be much better off without me. I just needed to know you were fine. I mean, if we were together now, you’d be miserable too. I can’t keep putting you through this. You can’t keep being a part of my failures. You’re made for better things. I can’t keep holding you back.
Her: Awesome. How’s work and all?
Him: Oh, you know. Same old. Been looking for a new job lately. Don’t think this one’s going anywhere.
Her: Told you, you’d tire of it.
Him: Hehe. Yeah. A knack for being right too.
Her: Shut up :P
Her: Seeing anyone new?
Her: Why? Chicks must be throwing themselves at you.
Him: I wish all chicks had a bad taste in men, but I guess you were the last one.
Her: You were good, ok. Just a little stupid and careless
Him: I was never good enough for you.
Him: You deserved better is what I mean.
Her: Don’t. Just don’t.
Her: I don’t want this conversation again
Her: It’s ok
Him: Wanna meet up sometime?
Her: You think that’s a good idea?
Him: What’s the worst that could happen?
Her: Manslaughter :P
Him: I’m willing to risk it
Her: Umm.. Ok.. :P
Him: Cool. Tomorrow? The Coffee Shop near your place?
Her: I’ll let you know
Him: Cool :D
