Over Latte and Scones

He said
“you told me you Loved me.”

She said
“no, I never said That.
What I meant was
‘I love you.’”

“Yeah, but…”

“What?”

and then
a swarm of
ellipses and
question marks
hovered over their
latte and scones.

  10. I feel like I'm watching this waiting for some tea and cookies. It demonstrates how even speaking the same language doesn't guarantee understanding.
