The Middle Of An Ending
I'm just this guy, you know?
To expand on that, I am also the following...

- Into creating languages and fantasy worlds from scratch
- A listener of audiobooks & good tunes
- Always too hard on myself

They moved closer and closer until they met in the middle of the dreary, snowy park. Not a nice, fresh fallen snow either. A kind of muddied snow that had been there far too long and needed mother nature to cover it up.
A swing in the distance creaked loudly to break the tension.
"I..." she started even though she knew she wouldn't be able to finish the thought.
It hurt too much.
This had meant something to her. To him too probably, but especially to her. That was what she told herself anyway.
"I know." Matthew said in a supportive manner that Maya felt she didn't deserve.
They hugged awkwardly.
There was a silence.
The swing didn't creak this time.
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
