Disconnect: A Drabble

“Here,” She handed him a folded piece of paper.

He lifted an eyebrow, “What’s this?”

“Try reading it,” She said with a smirk and a hand on her hip.

He unfolded the page and skimmed over the short note written in her familiar handwriting.

He furrowed his brow, “Okay…”

“What?” She looked at him, waiting for him to connect the dots.

“No,” She disagreed.

“What’s it supposed to mean?”

She took a deep breath and let it out quickly, “Nevermind.”

She took the paper from him, crumpled it and tossed it in the rubbish bin.
