Today's Word: Loathing

She closed her eyes and inclined her head, expecting his kiss, but he hugged her instead.
"Why can't you, Ray?"
"The war may take me."
"All the more reason -- don't deny what we both feel."
"I don't want our passion to be your last memory of me."
She couldn't understand. Wouldn't.
"Ray Jon," said Maddy, "if you walk out of here like this I'll curse your name everyday till I die."
He took her hands and gave them a squeeze, then turned and walked away.
She stared after him, loathing him -- loving him.
