Eddie: Frustrated Thoughts

"But why couldn't you have gotten a job, not me?" She whined.

That was it. I snapped.

"Because, Kaya, you need to learn how to deal with problems yourself! You can't depend on me for the rest of our lives!" My voice sounded harsh, but it was something that she needed to hear.

"You saying I'm too pathetic to get a job?!" She was clearly annoyed with me.

"Yes, Kaya! You're getting lazy! I don't know what to do with you anymore! Just sort out your life!" I screamed at her, letting my frustration out - I had kept all of my emotions inside of me for so long and I was sick of it.

"Get out! Go away! I hate you!"

With that, I slammed the door shut behind me, unsure what to do. The only thing that I was sure of was that I didn't want to be around when she decided to stop stropping. I quietly opened the front door, not wanting her to know where I was. I wanted her to panic when she came to apologise to me, to think that I was missing or worse. For her to feel bad.

"What's wrong with me?" I muttered under my breath, pulling the door shut with an audible crash. She needed to know, I wasn't going to be that cruel. I left the building and starting to walk towards the nearby park, planning to sit down on a bench and think.

Something distracted me. People in the next building were having an argument on their balcony. The woman said that the man was a waste of space and the man said that the woman was a slut. Then they just descended into pointless screaming.

I could see that I wasn't the only person who wanted them to shut up, to wish that we couldn't hear them anymore.

"Hmm. I wonder." A bad thought passed through my head. "Not right." 

I turned around and went home, dispelling the bad thoughts about Kaya. I loved her and I should never think about leaving her. It was just a moment of stupidity.

I pushed the door open with an apologetic smile but something wasn't quite right.

"I need some time." Kaya explained as she barged past me.

"Where are you going?" I called.

"Away." She answered, shutting the door.

I had lost my Kaya.

The End
