The cracking smile on her face, faded as he lifted her hands away. Propagating a gap between them, granting the cold air a territory, to crawl among the spaces. There was an interval silence before she broke it. "Would it hurt you if I chose something beautiful?". Deep down, she truly wished that it wouldn't. She then profoundly started studying him who was strenuously absorbed into fathomless thoughts. Another deadly silence filled in the room. To her great misery, he murmured, "I don't know." Along with a vulnerable gaze and a despairing smile, she let the words escape, "Tell me the truth then, will you?" He raised his eyebrows, "should I?" She nodded, as she barely knew that he was slightly nervous, "This," he paused, "thing between us, I don't want it anymore." She was in a dazed, having a hard time to conceive his sentence and approbate the bitter fact that he quit loving her.
