This isn’t right,” she confessed to the ceiling fan as it whirled around in slow deliberate circles, cooling the naked flesh below. She lay flat on the bed covered only by a thin nylon sheet and her sleeping lover’s embrace. To her right, the digital clock spoke of urgency. 12:04 AM....2:19 AM....3:33 AM. Time was escaping her and important questions still dangled in her head, impatiently awaiting answers. Her eyes scanned the room, strewn items revealing signs of a passionate evening: his faded jeans draped over the desk chair, her favorite sweater crumpled in a corner next to her purse, soiled pillows tossed to the floor. She looked to her left where her lover had found the most peaceful rest. Yes, he should be at peace, for she had made him feel so secure, so wanted. In her quest to mend his broken heart from past offenders, she had lied not only to him, but to herself. She did care intensely for this fragile boy, but “I don’t love him.” She knew it, the ceiling fan knew it, but how could her lips even begin to form the words to tell him? This question had tortured her as the clock moved forward without concern: 4:18 AM, 5:01 AM. She knew that he would soon awake with the sun, eager to carry out their weekend plans. She couldn’t let that happen; last night had already been a beautiful mistake. The room had grown cold and a weight had settled on her like a heavy blanket. Perhaps she did not truly care enough to give him the owing explanation, or perhaps she cared so much that she couldn’t bear to see his tears. But either way, she knew what she must do. She slid the ring off her finger and placed it on the pillow. And with a regretful, but resolute heart, she gently unwrapped her lover’s arm from around her waist.

Wow you have a natural talent for this sorta thing. Makes me want to do it again ;) Well I have to brush up on a few things first, it's been a while and I've also spent too much time in chat rooms with "their lingo" lol. Really good stuff though.
