'Say something for god’s sake! Say something!’'
I was in bits. For the last 48 hours, the voice in my head had been making me miserable, attacking me for not knowing what to say and scrutinising every word that came out of my mouth.
‘What’s wrong with you? Why can’t you speak? What must he think of you?’
The guy sitting opposite me was supposed to be my boyfriend, but right now he felt like a stranger. The silence between us was deafening, and had been for the last two days.
I stared out the window, blinking back tears, watching the trees whizz past as the train moved its way from Central Berlin toward the airport.
