It was a beautiful day in the small town of Willow Creek. Daisy was walking around the town square when she noticed her ex-boyfriend, Jake, heading her way. Daisy wasn’t ready to run into him yet, so she tried to avoid him by ducking behind a park bench. But Jake had already seen her.
“Hey, Daisy,” he said, as he approached her.
“Hey, Jake,” Daisy replied. She tried to keep her distance.
“Listen, Daisy, I know we had a bad breakup, but I wanted to apologize. I was a jerk, and I’m sorry.”
Daisy wasn’t buying it. She had heard this apology before.
“My lips are sealed,” she said curtly. “I don’t want to talk about it.”
“I understand,” Jake said. “But I just wanted you to know that I guess I’m still not over you.”
Daisy’s heart fluttered as she heard the admission. But she stayed strong. “My lips are sealed,” she said, as she walked away.
As she walked away, Daisy knew that Jake was being sincere. But she wasn’t ready to forgive and forget just yet. Maybe one day, she thought, her lips won’t be sealed anymore.
