What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, authored by the solid Velvet Verbosity. The word this week is "Chasm".
"You lied to me."
"No, I didn't. I didn't tell you everything."
"No difference. You lied. How can I trust you now? You've never lied to me before. Or have you?"
"No. No, I haven't. Look, I'm sorry. If I had known you would react this way, I wouldn't have held anything back."
"The TRUTH is all there should ever be between us - it shouldn't depend on anyone's reaction."
"You're right. Of course you're right. I am so sorry."
He stood there, wondering, how things had gone so wrong, how they would ever bridge the chasm suddenly thrust between them.
P.S. This last Tuesday evening I was at a function which included a whole bunch of Chicago Bloggers and Tweeters. I had thought to publish pictures of this today, but I don't have all the identities I need for the pictures. Yet. So, I figure Saturday and Sunday ought to be just the right time to publish those shots.
