A short story by moi on The Community Storyboard (and my 10th post there)!

Rachel pleaded with David, pressing her cell phone closer. “David, please, can’t we talk about it?” She lay on her side, hugging her pillow to her stomach. He had just told her about his plans for the summer, a European tour that he would take, but not with her. Not now.
“Rachel, we have talked about it,” David’s voice was low and soft, but impatient. “I told you from the beginning. I’m going to med school in the fall. I told you that when we started dating. Nothing has changed for me.”
Rachel felt her face burn. “Not even your feelings for me?” She sat up on her bed and hugged the pillow closer. Her long honey-blonde hair hung heavy with sweat.
