The idea had been to get away from it all, spend some quality time with each other and try to rekindle what had been lost.
It wasn’t working, and once again they’d argued.
Four years they’d been together.
In the beginning, they had faced shock, ridicule, prejudice, and eventually resigned acceptance from their families.
Most of their personal friends had gone but together they’d made new ones.
And there was the problem.
Alex was waiting further down the beach for Tony who had turned up ‘out of the blue’ the day before to surprise them. Only Alex could have told him where they were and now Chris was on the sidelines, no longer half of a couple.
Hurt beyond belief, she sat nursing her wounds, tears mingling with the sand.
She would leave tomorrow, unable to bear those looks, those touches, those smiles and intimacies she and Alex used to share.
When Alex got back to their flat, Chris would no longer be there. She had some pride as no doubt it wouldn’t be long before he moved in.
