Office romance?

“Keep smiling. Don’t let him see you cry.” This was the mantra being recited by Jackie as she listened to Mark explain why he thought it was time they called it quits. They had been in a relationship for 3 years, 21 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes. Yes, she had been counting. Their relationship wasn’t perfect but it worked. They had their share of good times and loved each other, or so she thought. Ok some times they fought, but that is normal in relationships right?!

“Jackie. Jackie. Are you ok? I need these documents photocopied for a meeting at 2pm today.” The sound of the urgency in his voice made her jolt back to reality.

“Oh yes, I’m fine. I just had something in my eye. I’ll get to it right away” she said cursing her reality. She took the paper from Mark, her boss who she had worked with for just over 3 years, and sluggishly headed to the print room.
