Slowly Falling, Barely Reaching

Bo is an artist. A poetry artist, to be exact. A girl who's muse, is the love of her life, Carter. She writes and writes about him. But things start to be different... what is Bo going to do? Nothing will ever make her heart stop loving Carter, but her mind tells her it's time to move on.

This is a short story, revolved around 'Near To You' by A Fine Frenzy.


3. Talk it Out

Bo drove to Carter's house and stopped at Starbucks on the way. It was pretty hot out, so she got herself a venti passion tea lemonade, extra sweet and her boyfriends favorite, a caramel frappuccino.

On the way there, she was thinking of things to say. She had so many things that she couldn't say.

*knock knock*

"Bo it's open!"

Bo walked into the house and Carter was playing Black Ops. As usual.

"Hey babe, I brought you a caramel frap..." said Bo trying to get his attention.

"Thanks you can just set it down on the table," he said, without even looking up.

Bo thought to herself... 'Wow. I haven't seen him in two weeks and he's not even getting up to hug me or kiss me... what did I do?'

"Carter... are you just going to ignore me the whole time?"

"I'm in the middle of an important level!"

"Well I'm in the middle of a pointless relationship," she said, and started to cry.

Carter paused the game, but didn't look from the screen. He just sat there.

"Bo is that really how you feel?" asked Carter.

"Yes, it honestly is. I feel like we weren't ready for something so big. Now we both have a part of each other that we can never get back, Carter... I love you, but I don't think you love me like I want you to. Can you even look me in the eye and say you're in love with me?" she asked tensely.

Carter walked up to Bo and put his arms around her.

"Bo... I honestly can't do that," and kissed her on the forehead. "But I do love you."

"I can't do this anymore... not without you knowing your feelings."

and Bo left. She ran out before Carter could try to change her mind. She was gone.
