Stick or twist?

‘So, how’s life?’

Susie placed her wine glass on the table.  ‘It’s okay.’

‘That good?’

‘I think it might be time to move on.’

‘Again?  You’ve only been with them two months.’

‘From Simon.’

‘Simon?  Are you crazy?’

‘I ... well, I just ...’

‘Do you love him?’

‘Yes.  I ... yes.’

‘And he’s treats you well.’

‘I wouldn’t have lived with him for eight years if he didn’t.’

‘And the bedroom?’

‘Good.’

‘So what’s the problem?’

‘It just feels ... stale.’

‘Stale can be refreshed.  Finding something better might be more tricky.’

‘But it could be exciting.’

‘Or lonely.’

Rob - I like the way you capture that feeling of needing adventure. Nicely done
