It was a day like no other. School was school, conversations were conversations. Life was good. And then suddenly, out of nowhere, I didn't see it coming. An ordinary day changed at the blink of my eye.
I woke up like it was any other day. I ate breakfast, brushed my teeth, and combed my hair. I looked at my phone, smiled, and read the usual "good morning babe" text that appeared on my screen every morning at the same time. I got into my car, drove to school and arrived on time like any other ordinary day.
The conversations we exchanged were normal conversations; "I love you", "I miss you", phone calls and Face Time calls. "Distance doesn't phase us" was muttered from your mouth. Your voice seemed joyous, and excited, just like any other ordinary day. How lucky I was to have a boyfriend that loved me just as much as I loved him.
The day went on like any other ordinary day. The day turned into night. We talked, we laughed, we smiled and we fell more and more in love with each other. I had an exam the next day and you told me how proud you were of me. You said, "I couldn't be more proud to call you my girlfriend".
Every night, like this night, we talked on the phone, and fell asleep to the sound of each other's voice. When I called you, you sounded calm, happy, and ready to fall asleep like any other ordinary night. And then suddenly, out of nowhere, it happened.
My heart began to race and tears formed in my eyes. I didn't understand the words that you were saying to me. Your lips formed, "I think we need a break" and my heart stopped. I felt like I couldn't breathe and my mind began to race. The unthinkable happened and I didn't see it coming.
My whole body ached. My heart was broken. There was nothing I could do about it. I lay there with tears in my eyes wondering what I said wrong, what I did wrong. I felt as if my whole world was crashing down.
I saw my future crumble in the blink of an eye. Six words. One phone call. My future and life changed.
It was an ordinary day.
I never saw it coming.
