She lay in bed at night, listening in to the darkness for Davie coming back.
His unique key jangle. The double shuffle of his feet wiping on the mat outside as he opened the door. That odd fake cough as he hung his jacket on the hook. The feeling was familiar. Staining her ears at the quietest time, holding her breath for a sign. Only now it was a different person she was waiting for. She felt small in her bed again. But this time she wouldn’t be left alone.
Just a few more days till she was out of here, and back with him. This was just a pause, not an eject.
She wanted to dream, close her eyes, and be somewhere else. She concentrated on slowing her breath, slower, longer. The edges began softening, the lines between face and pillow, organs, and the universe. Atoms spreading, merging, changing, drifting, then falling, faster, too fast. Then drop. Hard and sharp. Hitting the bed and back within the boundary of her solidity and goose-bumped skin. Still here. Listening into the night.
