May 26, 2007
Summer snuck up on us while we slept. One morning we opened our eyes and the heat was oppressive so we decided to clean the pool.

By that summer we barely tolerated each other. We had gone sour but stayed together for principal. The only thing we had in common any longer was the water.

The cleaning of the pool did not bring us together again. As we swam our laps we were careful not to brush against each other.

There was nothing but silence there, like the silence which filled our home, our hearts.

It was over between us.
