Reader's Diary #2032- Mansi Shanburg: The Colourful Break-Up

 I loved the voice and dialogue (or rather withheld dialogue) in Mansi Shanburg's flash fiction "The Colourful Break-Up." 

It deals with a woman waiting for her girlfriend to show up, who she suspects (correctly) is planning to break up with her.

However, the narrator finds a way to keep her dignity in this moment, even managing to convince herself somewhat, that this is all ideal.

It's amusing and empowering, even if there's pain below the surface.
