If there was one thing that she hadn’t been expecting - it was to miss him as much as she was now. He hadn’t been gone long but the days without him felt lonelier. Staring at her phone, she finally dialed his number, only wanting to hear his voice even though she’d probably get his voicemail. Instead she heard him pick up on the first ring. “Hey… How’s Denver?” Trying to keep her tone casual and the conversation light.
He smiled upon hearing her voice, he had been thinking about her a lot more since having left town. “It’s going alright. Would be nice to have you here with me though.” But he didn’t plan on being gone long, eventually he’d come home and get to see her. The conversation was casual for a little while, just talking about everything and anything, because neither wanted to get off the phone quickly.
After awhile, she could hear him being called for dinner. “I hate not being able to see you.” She finally admitted, knowing that he would have to go soon.
“I miss you too.” He replied, smiling into the phone a little bit. “But hey when I get back there’s something I want to tell you in person so save some time for me in that busy schedule of yours.” Deciding to give her something to think about until he got back.
“You know I hate when you leave me hanging like that but I’ll see you soon.” She replied, smiling in return.
“Yes you will.” Was his response, both hanging up the phone moments later, left with the promise of soon.
