Conscious Uncoupling

There was nothing to say that hasn’t already been said. They’ve shed tears, shared affectionate touches and painful words, and at the end of it all, they came to the conclusion that this next step was the best thing for their relationship. But most importantly, themselves.

A week later, they chose to have one last dinner where they had their first date and reminisced their time together, because why end three years of companionship and love in bitter resentment?

When the moment they were both waiting for came, they stared silently at each other, memorising every little detail of the other person. He took in her arched eyebrows and slightly damp cheeks, while she focused on his long eyelashes and shaky breath. Then the ex-couple stepped forward and shared farewell hug.

Finally, they turned and went their separate ways, ready and eager to move on to fulfil a happier and better life.
