She looked him straight in the eyes and lied.
“No I haven’t been with another man. You’re the only one on my mind and in my heart. I promise you that…”
The fact that she felt no regrets whatsoever as she uttered these words, slightly scared her . When did she become such a flagrant liar? Numb. Unable to feel anything. She was always stubborn and even got remarks from her previous boss.
If she were to learn anything, she needed to let go of some of that trait and embrace new ideas.
She was a firm believer that people don’t and can’t change. Small unexpected turns in one’s life, can’t undo all the habits that a person has piled up over the years. Customs that have shaped a character. But this new numbness, this indifference to human feelings, a nonchalance to other individuals and selfishness surprised her. It made her re-think all her theories. And even herself.
Why is she suddenly selfish, and feeling so careless about him? His love had been the most genuine thing she has felt in a while, yet something was missing. Something major, yet she couldn’t pinpoint it.
Perhaps it was time to move on.
She decided not to think further of what just happened and her new ordeal. Some things are better abandoned and not overthought.
