There was nothing left to discuss as far as I was concerned, but I met him at the creek bridge to hear him out.

“You know it didn’t mean anything.”
“If it didn’t, you wouldn’t have done it.”
Five. Four. Did I really have the strength to do it?
“It was a mistake.”
I lunge forward and push him over the railing.
