Axel Jones wants to marry Emme, but she denied his proposal. They both pretend it didn’t affect their relationship, but it did. A wedge divides them, and now they’re stuck in a stalemate. What do you do when one person wants more and the other doesn’t?
“I just wanted to come here to talk.” He finally looks up at me and tugs on his hair again before running a hand over his beard. “I’m frustrated, Emme.”
“I know you are,” I say softly. “But I’ve made it clear what I need.”
“Yes, you have, but what about what I need?”
He’s right, and I know that. He’s got needs that are different from mine, and his aren’t being met in this relationship.
I don’t answer, because I don’t actually have an answer for that.
“We’re stuck, Ems. We’re at an impasse. A stalemate. What do you do when only one person wants more?”
“You wait.” My voice comes out with more vehemence than I intend, and I suppose that’s maybe the first real sign of emotion Axel’s heard from me in a while.
“What if I don’t want to wait?”
I glance away from him, because something deep in my heart knew where this was leading. “Then we have some decisions to make, I guess.” I say it softly because it’s not what I want. I don’t want to end things with Axel.
“I think we do.” His voice is quiet, too.
