Olivia:

“Hahaha Lucas you’re so funny! Stop I can’t take it! “ While we were in the car today, the tears began to swell in my eyes, they started streaming down my freckle filled cheeks. Lucas handed me a tissue and I wiped my tears and continued to laugh at the stupid things that he had just said. When I laugh too hard, I tend to cry so Lucas always had a tissue box in his car just in case he said something funny. Lucas is such a jokester. Almost every other sentence that he says is a joke and it makes me chuckle so hard. I love Lucas so much.

 

Lucas:

Hahaha Lucas you're so funny! Stop I can't take it!”There she goes again, laughing at who knows what. We were just having a normal conversation and all of the sudden it’s like the Hoover Dam had just burst. Her laugh used to be so cute and I loved to hear it, but now it is like my ears are bleeding and I just want to make it stop Things are very different now compared to the beginning of our relationship.

 

Olivia:

Lucas drops me off at home and I am filled with butterflies as he kisses me

goodbye.”To Jupiter and back” I squeal. This is our thing, it started a while back but we still say it. “I love you to Jupiter and back” he used to say, but now he just smiles. I don’t mind, I know that he loves me, and I hope that this feeling never goes away. We sat in my driveway for a while, I just like to sit there with him. We don't have to talk or even look at each other. Just his presence makes me happy. Is that weird? I don't think so.

 

Lucas:

I kiss her, but the spark isn’t there anymore. I fake a smile as she runs into her house jumping as if she had just won the lottery. “To Jupiter and back” Oh my God that is the most annoying thing that I have ever heard. Who the hell even says that I just don’t understand. We sat in her driveway for 20 minutes but when she finally got out, I was already out of the driveway before the door even shut. I drive away quickly and I hope this is the last time that I will ever have to come to this house.

 

Olivia:

Oh look a text from Lucas, “Meet me in the McDonalds parking lot in Enfield at 3:00 tomorrow. We need to talk about something.” I responded “Okay cutie” with the pie emoji next to it. I assume that he is going to take me to look at apartments for when we move in together. We have been talking about this for some time now. We have also talked about our future, spending the rest of our lives together.  I think now is going to be the day that is going to propose. Ahhhhhh!!! I can’t wait till tomorrow!! I love Lucas so much I can't wait to tell my friends and family about the news!

 

Lucas:

Read 2:33 PM. Does this girl ever get off her phone? Why is she so obsessed with me? I’m not even that good of a person. Oh well, I hope she doesn’t get the wrong idea of why we are meeting 30 minutes out of our hometown. Recently we talked about our future, but everything that I said was a lie. I could not picture myself spending the rest of my life with her. I hope that she is strong enough to handle what I am going to tell her, but then again I don’t really care how she feels anymore.I cannot  wait until tomorrow.

 

Olivia:

Tomorrow came and I was already in the parking lot at 2:30. I was so excited I wanted to be early so he would know that I was serious about our relationship. Last night I had looked up apartments and printed up some good ones. There weren't many that we could actually afford, so I only printed out like 4. I hope he doesn’t think that’s a bit much. I’m just so ready to take the next step, he is the one that I want to be with for the rest of my life. Lucas is the love of my life I hope he knows that.

 

Lucas:

It was 3:00 and I was still 15 minutes away. I hope she hasn’t been sitting in her car waiting for me, she cares a lot. But I haven’t cared about her for a while now and I can’t wait till I can finally be unbothered. I can finally get away from that ear piercing laugh.

 

Olivia:

He pulled into the driveway with his old rusty pick up truck and I began to smile uncontrollably. He got out of his car and didn’t look very amused with me. I’m not sure what I did to upset him, today was supposed to be a very special day. Today was the day that we realized we were going to spend the rest of our lives together. “Hey Lucas I missed you so much!!”

 

Lucas:

She watched me get out of the car like she was an infant and I had her favorite toy. I’m not sure why she is so happy, I haven’t been happy in this relationship for a while.”Hey Lucas I missed you so much!!” “Hi Olivia,” I muttered as she rushed out of her car to hug me. “Olivia, we have to talk about our relationship.”

 

Olivia:

I was freaking out inside. I could feel the beads of sweat dripping from my forehead because I was so nervous. “Olivia, we have to talk about our relationship.” Lucas blurted out. This was the moment. It was happening. The rest of my life would depend on this moment. Don't forget to breathe. Look surprised like you didn't expect this.

 

Lucas:

“Olivia, I’m breaking up with you. I’m so sorry but I can’t do this anymore. I no longer have feelings for you.” The words flowed out of my mouth and I couldn’t stop myself once I started. It was over. I was officially free. I turned around to go to my car, and she ran after me. “Olivia, I’m sorry. Go home.” There were tears rushing down her face.

 

Olivia:

 

“Olivia, I’m breaking up with you…” This was all I heard and then my mind went blank. I thought everything was perfect, but I never took the time to look at our relationship from his point of view. There were tears rushing down my face, but he didn’t hand me a tissue.
