She went back through their texts and found that he liked peanut butter milkshakes, so she picked one up for him on the way to his house at 11:00 PM at night. After a quick kiss hello, they stood by his kitchen with their liquid delights.
She had also brought tequila which he declined. She had a shot and she talked about the rough day that she'd had. The construction going on around her office was slowly driving her mad. The beeping of the machines and the yelling of the workers while she tried to make phone calls was trying at best. She was even starting to hear construction noises in her sleep.
His work had been so delayed before the holiday, and fires surrounding the area delayed him by a whole day of travel. He hadn't even been in town for 24 hours and he was leaving the next day.
She gave him a pouty face and said "poor baby" as she moved towards him and kissed him. He pulled her towards him as they kissed. After a moment they broke apart and he laughed at her height, as he was almost as tall as she was standing as he was sitting on his barstool.
"I think maybe you are just too tall. I think I'm the perfect size."
He grabbed her around her waist and said "Hmmm...maybe. Lets take this to the couch."
After the teasing she had promised and stepping up the physical as much as they could while keeping their clothes on, he sighed that he should be going to sleep. She asked when he needed to get going the next morning. He said he had to be up by 5:00 AM to do a few hours of work before driving 4 hours to his other job for the weekend.
"Jeez, do you want me to leave? I feel bad, you don't even get a few hours sleep before heading out again. Why did you even invite me over?"
"Hey...if I didn't want you here, you wouldn't be here."
She slept over again, if only for a few hours. He was grumpy in the morning, and he stated again that he wasn't a morning person.
"I know. It's adorable." She said as she kissed his cheek. He kissed her goodbye and watched her cross his lawn before closing his door.
