Flash Fiction

It was a warm sunny day, and Jen and Connie were lying at the beach soaking up the sun.

"So how are things going with you and Dale?" Connie wasn't sure if Jen getting back together with him was a good move.

"It's ok. He's talking about moving to Dubai and he wants me to go with him. He said I wouldn't need to work and I could just do volunteering or something."

Connie felt a surge of frustration but she held back from saying what she really wanted to. How could she make Jen see that this guy was calling all the shots? Again.

She nodded her head and chose to ask a question that she also wanted to know the answer to, "oh? That's what he wants? What do YOU want Jen? What do YOU want?"

Jen looked at Connie with a blank expression as if she was speaking a language she didn't understand, "I don't know. I've never thought about it."
