I left a note on the fridge letting himknow that I would see him at midnight in the backyard for the meteor shower thinking it would be the perfect place because he always goes to get a snack when he gets home. It was a dark night perfect for viewing the light show as the news called it and I prepared for it by pulling the picnic table out into the middle of the yard so it would be clear of the trees, threw a blanket over it and grabbed one of the pillows off the couch. It was about 10 till so I jumped up on the table and laid back to watch the sky, which was one of my favorite things to do since taking Astrology in college.
The shower started right on time and was a beautiful as they said it would be. It lasted about 45 minute but I had fallen asleep after the long day. I woke up about an hour later and was by myself. The tears poured down my face as I started think about all of the terrible things that could have happened. From hospital to jail and several places that aren’t as dramatic. I had been crying for at least 15 minutes when he came through the back door and was so upset that he hadn’t shown up. He said he had been looking all over for me and that he had to work late. He didn’t even see the note even though he looked in the fridge. He told me from the beginning that he was never very good at subtle.
I forgive him, I always will no matter what just like I love him and always will no matter what.
