You begin to think this is easy - this not loving him. The key, you realise, is
avoidance. Don't look back. Never, ever look back.
He notices, of course. He starts seeking you out - asking questions to which he has all
the answers. But this is easy, you tell yourself.
And then it happens. A perceptive child, on some otherworldly planet, asks, "How do
you bear it?"
"Being in love."
And he's right there, watching. Momentarily, lightning-fast, your gaze hits his. And
everything falls away - all is lost.
You can't do this. You can never do this.
