Communication Blackout

His mood was as dark as the sky.

Lisa had been different lately. She seemed sad and sometimes he caught her staring at him, frowning. Had he done something wrong? They’d been together for over a year now and he thought they did great.

She’d suggested they have dinner and talk. There was a good restaurant nearby. Unease crawled up his spine. Would she break up with him? And where was she?

“Boo!” She jumped from the shadows, bent over from laughing.

“Dammit, Lisa! As much as I love you… You’ll give me a heart attack.”

“You… you love me?”

(100 words)
