Meredith looked deep into Jonathon's eyes and saw the truth she'd been avoiding for months. He didn't love her the way she loved him.
They'd met during the long days of summer and those first few weeks were magic. They frolicked at the beach, took long hikes in the woods, got drenched in a sudden thunderstorm after an afternoon antiquing in the next town over. It seemed like they were meant for each other.
But as time wore on, those perfect days became fewer and farther between. The ease they'd once shared seemed strained. He wasn't as quick to laugh at her jokes or reach out to hold her hand when they walked down the street. Things weren't bad, the just weren't quite right anymore.
So, she took a deep breath, pulled her scarf more tightly around her neck, gave him a kiss on the cheek and whispered "goodbye".
