Decision

This is written in response to Denise’s Six Sentence Story word prompt – Mess.

That was probably the hardest video call he had to make, the ambience filled with a sense of dread.

“I decided to take the teaching job offer and stay in Berlin”, he launched straight into it without delaying the blade.

Silence, absolutely silence, then her eyes welled up, then the screen went blank, clearly, she hanged up.

Then the text came, “Obviously, you have made up you mind. I have nothing to say and no strength to fight for us anymore. I wish you all the best and I still love us, but that’s the past .”

After sending the text, she let her tears roll down like a waterfall sitting in the waiting area of the abortion clinic; what was a decision to be made, now is a conclusion.

From the soundbar, Ami Winehouse is singing, “…love is a losing game, one I wished I never played, oh what a mess we made…”

    1. It’s devastating to see human terminate a life because they cannot see the way out in their circumstances. Our senses often tricked us to believe that there is no hope. Faith is the only way out of the mess.

  1. I like the way your mind works.
    Gah, what a strange thing to say to a stranger. Hi, my name is Robert and I correspond with Bogdan Dragos via our blogs. I came across your comment on one of his recent posts and liked the picture of your (I assume) face. I clicked the link to your blog (obviously, or I would not be here) and then read your most recent post (this one). I made this comment because I tend to allow characters to become unhappy in my stories. Actually, when I think about it, I don’t really like this trait in my storytelling. I’d rather make my characters happy and I’ve been working towards that, but not always successfully. So maybe I should re-write my opening line.
    I understand the way your mind works.
    Hmm. That sounds wrong and presumptuous. Strike that. Leave my first line intact. Ignore my explanation. Move on.
    I’m Robert and I don’t normally explain myself. Hi. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Robert from the original York! It’s very nice to virtual-meet you. Your thoughts flowed on this commment, and I appreciate you.
      Regarding the unhappiness of the characters, I guess it’s such a short story, more like a scene, I would leave the readers to relate to and ponder on what the characters are experiencing, and imagine how the story will unfold and end.

      1. Hi Cassa from the original Australia. Nice to meet you too. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
        Yes, you’re right. Characters and conversations are just ripples in the surface of life. Who knows what map arise from the depths in the future.
        See you later.
        Robert.
