OneWord, Burst

Pardon the lateness in this post. I had a late night with friends, then ended up singing karaoke at this dive bar downtown. It's been a slow, relaxing day with limited movement.
OneWord is a writer's prompt that asks people to see what they can do with one word - and 60 seconds.
The word? Burst.

She held her breath until she felt her chest would burst. Everything around her took on a hazy edge; his music, coming form the car stereo, started to go mute. The edge of her vision narrowed.
“Look, baby, all I said was I think it would be good if we saw other people, to make sure that our love is strong.”
She’d heard that one before.
