Ready, Set, Done: Thin Line

Prompt from here.
Based on true story.

There’s a thin line between love and hate, they keep telling me.
I wonder.

It was not uncommon to have my old iPhone 4 ringing in the middle of the day with a certain someone’s name glaring on the screen. I never put up the so-called profile pictures in any of my contacts. It’s too Facebook-ish. There are also names in that contact list that I hope to never show up on my screen, but there they go.

Every.
Single.
Time.

One of those was this particular person.
I ended up putting “You-Know-Who” instead because I’ve had enough of seeing his name everywhere and hearing it non-stop (actually I wanted to input “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named” but it’s just too long).

Ever since I met him the second time, it seems like my phone exists just to receive his calls. (This, however, is not what you may think this is. This is not a sappy story of any boyfriend in this whole wide world, in case you assume I have one.)

My phone log has only one name; be it messages or calls.
“You-Know-Who”.

Every.
Single.
Time.

I take a deep breath.
And pick up the phone.

There’s a thin line between love and hate, they keep telling me.
The moment I hear that voice again, though, I always wonder.
