1214 – Experiencing Dread

Brianna: Are you still here? I thought you left ages ago.

Viktor: There’s no rush. I’m thinking of postponing until tomorrow.

Brianna: Why?

Viktor: I feel a sense of foreboding. I have a sneaking suspicion that things aren’t going to go well.

Brianna: Under the circumstances, I can understand your reluctance, but it’s like ripping off a bandage. It’s best done quickly.

Viktor: I’m not sure about that. I have a feeling that things are going to go very, very wrong, and the longer I can put it off the better.

Brianna: Next week is your girlfriend’s birthday. You don’t want to break up with her on her birthday, do you?

Viktor: No, that would be cruel. Maybe I should hold off until after next week.

Brianna: You’re really dreading breaking up with her, aren’t you?

Viktor: She’s got a temper. When I told her that I couldn’t join her on a visit to her parents’ house last weekend, she went ballistic, and I have dents in my car door to show for it. I expect this to be much, much worse.

Brianna: Ah, I see. I never liked the idea of breaking up with someone remotely, but it might be called for in this case.
