As he watched her, he thought of the call she’d received last night. “Do you and your ex keep in touch?”
Instead of an answer or comeback, she looked at the ocean.
Inside him, a voice protested as he walked over to where she stood. Leave it alone. But there was something he had to know. He stopped beside her and stared out at the horizon where the whitecaps rolled along the surface of the water. “It’s not over between the two of you, is it?”
She turned to go and he caught her arm. He wasn’t going to let her go until she answered his question. A deep breath escaped her lips and she finally lifted her face. That’s when he saw a tear glisten on her cheek.
His gaze followed its fall as she said, “I told you it’s complicated. Okay?”
He wiped the tear from her cheek with his thumb. “Does he know you’re here with me?”
“No. He doesn’t even know you exist.”
Her words came as a blow. “You never told him about us?”
“I never told anyone about you.”
He looked out the window again as a tic created a notch in his jaw. “Sure,” he said in a rough voice. “There was no reason to say anything about us.”
“Let it go,” she said softly.
He had been trying to let it go for a long time. “Have you let it go?”
