Seni cut out her heart, intending to give it to someone worthy, but accidentally flushed it down the toilet. She watched it swirl and swirl, thinking she could reach in, pluck it out, and dry it off with a towel. Instead it disappeared down the hole with a rather definitive whoosh and she was left staring into the white bowl at still toilet water.
She left the bathroom numb, went into the kitchen and sat on the counter. Her friend, Idara, whom she lived with stood at the stove frying eggs while singing along to the music playing on her phone.
“I lost my heart,” she told her Idara.
Her friend didn’t hear her. She kept dancing and singing along.
“I lost my heart,” she said louder. This time Idara heard. She stopped moving, put off her music and turned around.
“You did what?”
“Lost my heart.”
