When You Close Your Eyes

Things between Lionel and Isabelle aren’t as easy as they once were.

After almost 4 years together, their relationship is starting to struggle, something which ultimately causes the two of them to agree to end things before things between them deteriorate further.

There’s just one problem: They’re only a month away from her sister’s wedding.

Not wanting to upstage her little sister in the run-up to her big day, or cause problems with her parents who’ve always been fond of Lionel, Isabelle suggests that they postpone their break-up until after the big day, something which Lionel hesitantly agrees to, wanting to help her out.

Will the two of them still decide that breaking up is for the best or, will a month together help them put things back together again?
