The hardest part was taking a huge step back from a perfectly comfortable and loving relationship. Still, in attempt to resolve her uncertainty, she insisted on walking away from one of the best persons she had ever grown to know.
In one scenario, this break wouldn’t last and they’d end up together. The Great Unknown wouldn’t be greener on the other side, her nagging urge to experience independence would dissipate, and they’d live happily ever after, etc.
On the flip side, there was a chance that they would both move on from each other. Or worse, what if one moved on and the other not? The entire idea was against his will but what if somehow they each found someone else who was a bit more attentive or compatible? He could fill her void and she could his.
But would he take a chance of letting that happen? He had no choice.
