Prompt: “I’m going to pretend that didn’t happen and go back home now.”
“I’m going to pretend that didn’t happen and go back home now.” Alex said once that embarrassing moment happened. It wasn’t anything bad but everyone has those moments that you mess up doing something, or saying something. That was one of those moments. I like our relationship because when those types of moments happen we laugh, and it isn’t awkward at all. We’re so comfortable with each other and it makes me wonder how many relationships are out there that are this comfortable.
“I’ll miss you,” I tell him. He smiles at me but doesn’t say anything because his expression says it all. He closes the door behind him, and I go and clean the kitchen from the mess I made from dinner.
A while later Alex sends me a text.
I made it home alive. Can I come back now? 🙂
I smile and my heart melts. I write back:
Of course. I love you.
He sends another text back telling me that he loves me and to make sure I don’t stay up late. I have a bad habit of doing that but it’s how my brain functions. I need to write as much as I can because of due dates that I set up for myself. I write better when I’m under pressure. Tonight I write so much, and exhausted myself, that I end up falling asleep at my desk.
