Exasperation in Love

Stupidity that commonsense could have avoided registered in my thoughts followed quickly by frustration laced with resignation.

“What am I to do with you?” I sighed.

“Keep me?” his said, his hopeful child like expression beaming up at me from where he lay amongst the debris of what used to be a chair.

Shaking my head I took a deep breath and managed not to smile. “You are impossible,” I said trying to keep the irritation in my voice and failing.

“But you love me anyways,” he said with a conviction and grin no other could match.

With a sound of disgust I threw my hands up into the air and turned away, knowing he was right which irritated me further. “Clean it up!” I groused walking from the room before my laughter could escape, ruining what little anger I had managed to keep. How did he do that? No matter what he did, how frustrating he was, I could never stay mad at him. It was beyond exasperating!

His knowing chuckle followed behind me, promising a make up session I knew I would soon not forget once the mess was cleaned.
