Nothing More Than That by Michelle K.

She stumbles into Amy's office, the over- enthusiastic sighs ringing in her ears. She wants to get away from everything, wants to be with Amy and the quiet, wants to stop the voices in her head, the ones telling her: Josh and Amy aren't here, Josh and Amy left together, Josh and Amy...

One look at her flushed face confirms what Donna feared when she noticed their absence. She bites the tongue that refuses to spill forth indignation, stares at the woman whose bed she's shared more times than she can count (or, at this moment, wants to admit).

"Donna," Amy says, half-surprised, half-apologetic, and Donna wants to tell her not to worry about soothing the broken parts.

It's all her own fault anyway. She let herself believe that Amy was telling the truth about her feelings for Josh; that Amy's interest in Donna's own Josh-related emotions was about anything other than procuring him for herself. It was sex as control, and nothing more than that.

She opens her mouth, waiting for something to fall out. Maybe a sarcastic 'I hope you're happy,' or some other call of the bitter girl who's been tossed aside. But there's nothing. She's never been good at properly expressing her anger. Telling herself that Amy doesn't deserve to be the source of her pain, she turns around and leaves.

She tells herself she'll never return.
