Better Off Without You

They argued and fought and every time they were close to breaking up, she would run back to him and beg him for forgiveness. This time, however, she’s not doing the running. This time, she's decided she's better off without him

Melissa Thinks: It’s a fairly short one shot, but that’s okay. “Better off Without You” stands on it’s own two feet despite that it’s less than 1,000 words. The fact that the characters are unnamed gives the reader room to compare the scenario to their own stories or maybe even their own lives; it’s definitely a versatile one shot. Nothing before or after the scene is explained, giving it a mystical aura. The deep emotional pockets that slowly leak out as you read on make an impression and work quickly in pulling the reader in. The ending might surprise you (I say this because it definitely not what I expected), because it strays from the cliche and that’s exactly what I love about it.
