Heartache

by Symphora | Score: 3150

Staring at her feet, Rebeka felt her whole world collapse when she heard those words: "... I only dated you because I pitied you; it must've been hard falling in love with the same gender." Although it wasn't said, Rebeka knew when she heard the tone, Orphelia didn't care for her. No. She did like her at all. 

"You don't mean that, right?" Gods, now she sounded desperate.

"Every word."

Salty liquid trickled down her cheek, her vision blurred. She wanted to scream. Scream at Orphelia. Scream at the world.

"You are pathetic." Were Orphelia's words to her. "I thought I was obvious."

Rebeka ran, she ran from their home. Into the rain, the heavy droplets pounded against her head. The world was giving her a migraine. Orphelia was her girlfriend for eight years.
