[Sequel to You Leave Me Breathless!]
"What are you saying, Frank?" Gerard looks at me with a pained expression. His brow is furrowed and I want nothing more than to reach out and smooth the crease between his eyes, make the frown disappear and pull him closer to me.
But I swallow down those instincts and settle with a noncommittal shrug. "I'm just saying that I think we need space."
Gerard takes a step back, then another, moving so the kitchen table is between us. "Is that enough space? If not, I can go to the living room."
I shake my head slowly. "No, Gerard," I sigh. "That's... not really what I mean."
Gerard falls silent, no words exchanged between us for a long time before the frown returns. He blinks a few times and then says, "Oh... Shit."
And there it is, the entirety of our relationship summed up perfectly in the two simple words; Oh shit.
