A pause

“I don’t think I will….”

The pause seemed like an eternal stretch of time. What if she wants to leave forever? He should never have asked in the first place, forcing her to take a decision.

That moment brought many scenes from the past to mind – where he had been dominating, overbearing, violent, imposing ideas and rules on her.

“……go on a holiday this year.”

“Sure, er… I’ll never do it again,” he was not sure she understood why was he saying that, but he meant it.

    (He’s lying, of course*)

    *lying might not be the best word, as it is the nature of his personal reality that gives rise to the behavior, i.e. dominating etc**
    ** of course, in the end, both are responsible, one for not making the effort to gain a perspective on himself that would make his statement less of a lie and the other for playing her part in his personal reality as opposed to her own.
