“I am leaving”
The file in his hand fell to the floor as he stared at her
“But why? I mean everything is good isn’t it?” he stammered.
She smiled at him sadly. “Financially yes. We are better off than ever but other than that? No.”
“What do you mean? We love each other.”
“No, we don’t.” She said tiredly ” You are in meetings all day in the office or in other parts of the world. Even when you are home, you are on your laptop working. You have everything except the time to give me more than a glance. Your work is your world now.”
“Look, I know. I am sorry, I will change. The work will take a back seat.” He promised
“We have…” The phone rang and they both looked at it. He looked at the phone indecisively and then he picked it.
” Just give me a minute,” he told her
She gave him a sad smile.
He answered the phone quickly and spoke and cut the call. He turned back to see the room empty. She was gone. He was alone.
The phone rang again.
