Drabble #56

Photo prompt: Forest path

She should have known the relationship was doomed when she started suggesting that they take walks. It had been that way with all the others. When things started getting rough, it became too hard to stay cooped up in the apartment with all that negative energy. So she’d suggest they walk together, talk things out in the open air. She hoped the feelings would dissipate into the atmosphere. But all their talking never fixed anything. One day, they came to a fork in a path, stopped, looked each other in the eye. Without a word, they went their separate ways.
