A Quiet Dinner

Post by uncre8d1 » Fri Sep 17, 2010 4:04 am

I noticed it on our ninth anniversary. I expected a nice, quiet dinner and I got it. It was nice, and very quiet. Twice he glanced away when I looked at him. I thought that maybe I’d missed something.
Slipped up somewhere.

Weeks later, he sat me down to talk; he was worried about me. It seems I’ve been mumbling in my sleep and… Well, he was worried about me.

Nothing to worry about, I said. I had to get dinner ready, I said. Running a thumb along the blade, I wondered idly who would eat the evidence this time.
