Loveless   by D. Avery

“Of course I’m grateful for what I’ve got, but still, it’s no field of daisies.”

“Are you looking at greener pastures, got your eye on something bettest-margaret-of-antioch-knotting-4r?”

“No, not at all, it’s just that, well, things aren’t the same; the thrill is gone, as they say, and anyway, if I moved on I’d hardly be missed, be replaced in a heartbeat, and I really wouldn’t mind being out on my own.”

“Well, if you’re just going through the motions, maybe you should quit it.”

“Thank you.”
