"Don't you think you must apologize to me?" That sounded more like a demand than a request.
Trust Mr-know-all to flaunt his arrogance like that! she thought. So typical of him! Why did always think he could do no wrong? He always assumed she was the weaker one and his sole purpose in life was to guide her!
"And why would I do that?" she asked.
"For all the hurt I have endured because of you."
"That is not true!"she exclaimed. "Are you accusing me of causing you hurt? Me????"
"I am...! I think before I act. That is how I shield myself from getting hurt. I don't act impulsively like you."
"One doesn't 'think' when one is in love." she looked hurt.
"That is the more irrational thing I've ever heard! When you don't think, here is where you land."
His sarcasm was getting to her.
"Ha! What would you know about love anyway, you practical fool!"
"What would I know??! Let me tell you what I know, being in love is like living in a fool's paradise. Would you dare to disagree?"
"But it is still paradise." The tinge of sadness was evident in her voice.
"So why are tears flooding your eyes then? Being in heaven shouldn't hurt like hell."
"It hurts when the person who made you feel so special suddenly leaves you hanging. It's crazy when the person who swore that he'll never hurt you, is the one who hurts you the most."
"You messed up your feelings and you messed up mine. I was treading with caution but you made me toe your line. You convinced me you were right. But now I know you weren't! I would have done well to have let my thoughts rule me than having your emotions butt in!"
"Okayyy....if it is an apology you want, you shall have it. I'm sorry for hoping you'd know what I want." she had had enough of his rebuttal, of telling her how wrong she was. She knew she wasn't, but she didn't want to keep arguing with him. He'd never understand anyway!
They had always been poles apart. He, the rational mind and she, the nimble heart.
