You took a period and turned into an ellipsis.

I didn’t even have to answer for that change to go into effect.

You put into motion an eruption of emotion I didn’t know I was there. But it had to be expressed.

An ellipsis is fine. An ellipsis was the status quo for so long. But I had come to accept the period; an occasional question mark. The exclamations had passed.

But an ellipsis . . . that’s something I don’t know what to do with.
