Several Sentence Sunday

Posted by Brenda Dyer on November 20, 2011 at 11:30 AM

Thanks for stopping by and reading my SSS--several sentence Sunday.

Set up: Katherine sees Kal for the first time in ten years after  he up and left her--no explanation, just gone. Needless to say, she is angry.

 

Katherine crossed her arms over her chest. “What are you doing here?”

Kal pulled his left hand out of his pocket and showed her a small plastic bag. “Buying a video game.”

“I mean, what are you doing in Vancouver?”

“I moved here for work. What about you?”

 

“That’s none of your damn business.” She pointed at his bag and smirked. “Nice to see you’re just as childish as you were years ago. Some things never changed, huh?”

His cheeks reddened and he glanced at the floor. Sighing, he rocked back and forth on his heels as he shoved the bag back into his pocket. With a flick of his head, he dislodged thick bangs out of his eyes. “Look, Katherine, I need to apologize.”

“For knocking me down? Don’t worry about it.”

A small smile tugged at his lips and sadness filled his eyes. “That too, but I’d like to apologize for the way I left things between us.”

The tenacious hold she had on her rage disintegrated. And not giving a crap that they stood in the middle of Wal-Mart with people all around, she said none too quietly, “You didn’t leave anything between us—you just left. I woke up and you were gone, which wasn’t unusual, you were never there in the mornings, but when I tried to call your cell phone, guess what? You cut the damn thing off! So please,do me a favor and keep your bullshit apologies, because I don’t want to hear them.”

Thank you so so so much for stopping by, Mirriam. LOL, Kal will try and apologize again, but he has a lot of explaining to do before she will accept and understand why he left.
