You’re sitting at the table in morning, a half-eaten plate of breakfast in front of you. Suddenly you realize that you’ve been staring at your partner, but you couldn’t guess for how long. However, it’s not a feeling of love or adoration that’s causing you to stare, not anymore. You’re staring trying to figure when you fell out of love with your partner. It feels like you’ve spent the last four years of your eight years together falling out of love.

Suddenly, your partner looks up at you and catches your eyes staring. The eye contact is not broken. You both know what is happening, what has been happening.

Your partner drops a quick smile before looking back away and returning to the newspaper.
