Ennui (Love Nudge)

100 words about a new beginning while wishing for the old familiar ennui

New flat; new (old) relationship status; promotion (the children live with your ex, there’s no need for you anymore to be home by dinner time); the upcoming trial of the other guy (which should end in a conviction because since you went to the police with the stalker photos he’d taken of the children, other women have come forward and testified to similar threats – this validates your decision to not be blackmailed into submission, even though you paid a high price for it).

And as of today, you’re on Tinder.

Excitement galore,
But be honest: you yearn for
Familiar ennui.
