11. "I am so sorry."

 

I woke up around four a.m. unexpectedly. I thought about what Caleb had said before he said goodnight. I needed to go, but I couldn't make up my mind. Was this really worth leaving my fiancé? The man who had proposed to me on New Year’s? I would be throwing away all our memories. I loved him, no doubt about that. But I didn't love myself. I just needed time to find myself again, to find my happiness. I stared at Caleb's sleeping body. His chest rising with every breath he took.

 

I made up my mind, I had to get away. I had to leave. I gingerly rose from the bed I slid the closet door open silently. I dug out my pink suitcase and packed. I wheeled it down the stairs and out to the car, trying to be quiet.

 

I walked back in the house and wrote a note for Caleb that read "I am so sorry. I wasn't planning on leaving tonight, but it's for the best."

 

I didn't know when or if I'd be coming back. All I know is that he deserves better.

 

I walked upstairs and laid the note on the bedside table and leaned over the bed and kissed him carefully one last time, just on the cheek though, I didn't want to wake him up. One of my many tears fell to the ground. I slid my engagement ring off my finger and placed it on top of the note.

 

"I love you" I whispered as I closed the bedroom door quietly.
