They were finally reunited. However that wasn’t how she had imaged it would go. She had envisioned a very romantic scenario that, it’s safe to say, didn’t take place. He welcomed her graciously into his arms and sealed the romantic moment with a very passionate kiss. That gave her hope that the night would go like she had imagined. However that was the only remotely romantic incident that took place all night.
They were with all of their friends, who were also welcoming him back. That factor acted as a distraction which was not in her plan. They were able to be alone together among their friends before, but this time that wasn’t the case. She was exhausted after one of the longest weeks in history, but she fought through it in order to meet him tonight. They ended up spending a total of around 40 minutes together.
“I was really looking forward to tonight. It’s a shame we weren’t able to spend more time together,” she said when the night had finally ended. She was able to hide her frustration well.
“Yeah, I know. But you seemed to be very tired tonight,” he responded with a smile.
“It’s been a long week,” she sighed. “So,I think I’m just going to call it a night, and head home.”
“As you wish, I’d rather you didn’t though,” he continued.
“I need to get some sleep, and don’t you have somewhere you need to be.”
“I can be a little late.”
“You don’t need to be. Plus I’m exhausted. So, I’ll see you later” she said ending the conversation and planted a kiss on his cheek.
At home she undressed, trying hard not think of the night’s events, and collapsed on the bed next to her dog. “This night has been longer and more tiresome than my entire week,” she told him before falling asleep.
