A day in a lesbian's life: losing grip

losing grip

‘are you coming over today?’ eve said through the phone, she held it between her cheek and shoulder she tidied up her desk and got ready to knock off.
There was a long pause at the other end which was followed by a heavy sigh.
‘I don’t think I can make it tonight’, dana said with little regret evident in her voice.
‘can I ask why?’, eve didn’t want to seem clingy but she knew she’d hate herself if she didn’t ask.
‘ummmm’, she said uncertainly,’I just want to spend some time on my own, that’s all…’
Eve felt her throat constrict, something was going terribly wrong, dana had been strange lately, the weight of the impending doom hang heavily upon them both.
For the life of her, eve could not think back to when it had began, it was like one moment they were smiling and the next a gigantic dark cloud crept up unnoticed.
She could see the change in dana’s eyes, hear it in her voice.
She felt alittle resentment building up, why did dana have to go and fuck up a good thing that way.
‘ok…let me know when you want to hook up then’ she said, feigning nonchalance.
‘ok…’ is all dana said before the life crackled out of the line.
Eve laid her phone down thoughtfully, sometimes one could feel when the beginning of the end was upon them, she shook the thought away, telling herself to relax and not think too much.

‘I love you’, eve said matter-of-factly , they stood side by side doing dishes at the sink.
Dana dried as eve washed.
‘I love you’, she repeated when dana only looked at her dumbfounded, she did not turn to look at her.
‘funny how one never notices when it begins, when the slight ache in one’s chest commences..kinda like a sickness- only a nice one’ eve continued softly as dana stood their quietly as if transfixed.
‘ I love it when you laugh or just smile- how your eyes light up when you are excited or when they glaze with passion…’
‘I just thought I should tell you’, she finished her narrative and handed her partner a dripping plate.
‘dana ignored and instead said grinning,’ can you say that again?’
‘say what again?’ eve was puzzled, thinking which part might not have been coherent.
‘everything..it sounded so beautiful, I want to hear all of it again’.
Eve scratched her head comically, ‘I wouldn’t know where to begin, I was mostly just mumbling foolishly’.
‘please..’ dana begged, maneuvering her way into eve’s front, she then wrapped her arms around her neck.
‘ummmm, let me see..i love you…I don’t think I can remember the rest’. She teased
‘don’t sweat it, that was my favorite part’, dana said kissing her forehead.
‘you are easy to please’ eve pulled her close.
‘I think it’s your fault, you are too cute’.
The dishes were forgotten.


A day in a lesbian's life: THE FIRST FIGHT :D

A day in a lesbian's life: THE FIRST FIGHT :D


‘why do I have to pick up after you?’, eve asked in an irritated voice holding a coffee mug dana had used and left next to the chair she’d been sitting on.

‘I was going to get that’, eve looked tired and dana didn’t want to sweat it.

‘no you were not, you never do’, she said as she dumped it in the sink alongside the other dirty dishes, dana had spent the day off at eve’s flat having spent the night there.

‘I know you are tired but don’t take it out on me’, dana’s voice was soft-eve just ignored her and started doing the dishes.

‘I was going to do those’, dana continued and got up.

‘when? At the second coming?’ eve oozed sarcasm.

‘if I want anything done around here, I guess I have to do it myself!’.

‘fine, am sorry then I shd have cleaned up but I was just exhausted and wanted to rest’.

‘yea, sure’ eve mumbled. It had been a rough day at work but she knew she was over reacting.

She stole a look at dana and found her brows knotted in confusion.

‘I’ll cook then, I was just waiting for you to get here so we could decide together what to eat’.

‘just leave it, I’ll take care of it when am done here, just sit and RELAX’. the dishes were making such a clatter as she roughly handled them.

‘eve…just let me do it if it’s such a big deal’.

‘fuck!’, eve swore as a mug broke.

The sound was so harsh in the silence that had taken over that dana jumped.

Finding eve’s behavior very unreasonable now dana slowly got her things together and prepared to go back to her place so she cd give her time to cool down.

When She was at the door and turned the handle eve suddenly stopped with the vigorous punishment she was imposing on the dishes and looked up.

‘don’t go..’ she said softly, ‘am sorry’.
