Rose looked away, unable to look Kiara in the eye. “We’ve grown apart, Kii. It’s not fair to either of us to keep holding on to something that’s dying everyday.” A sad tear escaped Kiara’s eye, tracing a path down her cheek. “But the plans we made, the dreams we shared…” Her voice trailed off, choked with emotion.
Rose reached out, her hand trembling as she wiped away her tear. “Life doesn’t always follow the plans, and sometimes, holding on hurts more than letting go.” Their hands lingered for a moment before she gently pulled away. The fading echoes of their laughter, once a symphony of love, now hung heavily in the air.
With a heavy sigh, Rose stood up. As she walked away, Kiara kept gazing at her as distance overwhelmed the sight. Wiping her tears, she stood and walked in the opposite direction. The park bench stood as a silent witness to the end of a love story that had once bloomed in its very presence.
