“So are you happy?”
You fell silent, looking away from me and heaved a sigh.
I laughed a little. “Well, that was a pretty dramatic response.”
You looked back at me, really looked at me, and my smile slowly faded. “I don’t know,” you said. “I’m not sure what happiness is anymore.”
Then we just looked at each other for a while, smiled our own wan smiles, and sighed together.
