I opened my mouth to say something but no sound came out. When I tried again and still no sound emerged, I gave up and looked down, running a finger over the surface of the case. I pulled the lid up. And then I burst into hysterics, laughing and crying at the same time. It was a silver necklace with a pendent. The pendent was…I couldn’t fathom the words. It was a small silver heart. Shooting through the heart was a single arrow, the tip made of a black stone. Onyx. My heart leaped and I wasn’t sure my ribs could contain it long.
Unable to stop it, I shuddered. It wasn’t only from the cold, though that seemed to suit my mood. Things were all screwy and I didn’t have any idea how to fix them. Maybe, just maybe, they weren’t meant to be. Everyone said things happened for a reason, so maybe tonight was one of those things. Maybe our breaking up had been one, too. By the time I caught up with him, he was already sitting on a swing. I sat down on the free one next to him and, more out of the habit than want, slowly began rocking back and forth.
What did he do to deserve my help? Save some of those puppies and kittens I must’ve tried killing off? The longer I looked at him, the more my heart tore to pieces. Seeing him with that other girl—Inez, one of my supposed friends—had felt like someone sending my heart through a dulled paper shredder. I was still slowly trying to put the pieces back together, but the final product would never look the same. I wanted to walk away right then and wash my hands of him. And I probably would have, if it hadn’t meant forfeiting love for myself.
