This 99 word piece was written for the Carrot Ranch weekly challenge, with the prompt of ‘never-ending’.
When she said to me our relationship was never-ending, my first thought was she’s saying ‘We’ll be together until death and beyond’. Later we had an argument over something I considered trivial and I started to wonder if she’d meant never-ending in the sense of ‘ongoing burden’. But then I cheered myself with thinking she’d meant ‘never’ ending, as in we could each stop saying ‘I’m never going to find someone who loves me’.
I’m probably over-thinking this. Of course the logical thing to do is just ask her but then I’d probably never hear the end of it.
