               You were laid out on your stomach across the white covers of your hotel bed, staring into the bright screen of your laptop. The browser was open on airline tickets and you were opting for the cheapest selection, though if you were being honest you really didn’t have to worry about the price, but good deals are good deals.

               It was pretty hard finding a decent seat on a plane the night before, but you booked one in the end, and right as you were entering your card information, your phone started buzzing next to the laptop. You scooped up the device and sat up, answering once you were settled against the headboard.

               “Hey, Seb.”

My parents have been together for 25 years. That is so much of a life. You could fill a book with all of those years. They had my brother and me. They saw us both graduate from high school. They saw us off on our first day of college. Between those milestones–drivers’ licenses and packing school lunches and taking me to cheerleading practice and my brother to football and taking us to dances and barbecues and family reunions and Christmases and birthdays and long car rides and falling asleep on my father’s lap and letting my mother meticulously clean the cuts on my legs that I got from falling or playing too hard with my brother. How my parents always told my brother and me that we’re all each other really has. But I never thought that was true. My parents’ love was a lot of what we had. It was like a small sun, and my brother and I orbited around it, always warm. Our parents will be together forever, we always said, and we swore on it. We wore that promise like a shiny badge on our chests.

This morning, my mother knocked softly on my bedroom door. My brother wasn’t home. She told me to come downstairs. It wasn’t until I was sitting in the living room with my mom and dad that I realized she was trying to hold back tears. They said, “This is the hardest conversation we’ve ever had to have with you.” A million scenarios stretched out before me like long, winding roads. Selfishly, I could only think of things that had to do with me. My father started to cry. He never cries. He said, “Your mother and I are separating. We’re more than likely going to get a divorce.” I asked them, twice, “Are you serious?” My heart was blowing up like a balloon. I felt too big for my body. I felt together and separate from my parents. I saw myself in the living room, watching everything, apart from what was happening. I am 23 years old and I felt like a child. I wanted to climb into my father’s lap. I wanted to leave. He kept saying, “I hope I can still be your dad.” They said, “We really tried.” And I believe them. I said, “I get it. Sometimes love just isn’t enough.” Because it’s not. Because I’m 23 and my parents’ love is no longer something I can rely on. I have to take the badge off. The sun of their love becomes the red dwarf, or maybe a black hole. I am an adult. I understand. I am thankful that they were able to stay together this long. I am so very, very lucky. But I don’t know if I believe in promises anymore. They are things that break.

My dad asked me if I had any questions. I didn’t say anything for a minute, and then I told them I was going to take a shower. I sobbed all the way upstairs. I cried, and washed my hair, and cried, and washed my body, and cried, and scrubbed at my face until I felt raw. I put on my clothes for work. I looked at myself in the mirror. I cried some more. The sun was out today. It didn’t rain. The snow is melting. Spring refuses to be kept in a cage. 

Today, my parents, after 21 years of marriage, told me they are getting a divorce. They did not fight. There was no screaming or yelling. It was the most quiet thing. The trees are starting to bloom. I wish I was nine again. I wish I was in our old house. I wish the rain would come. I wish I was at my parents’ wedding again, cake smeared on my face, my dress. I wish I had stayed awake for the entire thing.
