I groaned in frustration and pushed the book away. Tears began to prick at the corners of my eyes, but the determination to prove myself wrong was too overpowering. Do I look like a complete moron? Yes, yes I do. I was trying to persuade myself away from an evident truth. I was in an abusive relationship, but the words didn’t seem to fit right. Something bitter was left at the tip of my tongue every time the words rolled out my mouth.

Besides, admitting it was already a struggle, how was I going to stop it? I could leave, but he’d always come back. I could ignore, but the bruises will stay. It was as if everything was placed in a certain order that my mind couldn’t function with although my eyes were screaming the answer.

“One black coffee…” I looked to my side, finding a girl with black hair and cold brown eyes. I nodded to her , watching her walk away, and pulled the book back to me, opening it to a random page.

The first words, ‘an abusive relationship…’

It almost seemed as if I was being mocked. Everyone could tell me I was crazy, but I didn’t believe them. The words slapped me in the face, and with teary eyes, I stood up and left my coffee untouched on the table.

The need to leave the small shop was too overpowering, and I didn’t even glance back, too immersed in my own issues to the notice the small boy behind the counter top, struggling to hold his tears in. The coffee was his way of asking ‘are you okay?’, but that question didn’t seem to reach his intended receiver.
