*looks up with a big smile* *shrugs* I’m not that old, buddy. But yeah I’m fine. Thanks for caring about the man in the street. *smirks*
Why the big smile? Do I look like someone you know? *chuckles* Anytime mate. You from here?
Cant guarantee that. Don’t know what the future has in store. -she smiles but it fades quickly- Love you too.
It’ll be worth it. I miss her too. Im going to take a few days off. Make it up to you and her.
No, but I like to think I won’t leave you. *smiles*
You don’t have to do that.
-she touches her lips as she sits back- Im not running from you or the proposal. Simba you ever think that this is all moving too fast for me? I lost my mother when I was a child and my father 6 years ago. He died at my hand. I couldnt save him. Im still afraid to get close. I get close and I might lose you.
If you just give me more time. -her head drops at Annas name- How is she?
*shakes head* You are never going to lose me, Kida. I understand that you feel like this. But you need to just let me in more than you do. Trust in me. Believe in me. I love you. Have since you made that snarky comment at me when we first meet.
That’s all I do. Give you time. Yet, nothing has changed. *sighs* She misses her mama Kida. Ask about you everyday.
You know, I think I just got tired of sitting still all the time.
I know I would too if I was sitting around for that long.
*at the bar* Would you like me to buy you a drink? I don’t mind.
I cant control how long they take Simba. Some are a few days and some are weeks. I told you this is how it would be if we were together. I been a little lonesome. I miss you and….
*kisses her back;but pushes her away before he kisses her too long* You can’t do that! You can’t just walk back after being gone for almost a month. And kiss me like nothing is the matter! *waves hands around* You leave, I stay. Broken hearted as always. I get it that your job takes you away for a long amount of time. But since the….thing. You been taking on more out of the COUNTRY! Jobs than you used to. *lowers voice* It feels as if you are running from me. I-I can’t keep living like this.
Kida, I love you. My whole business is inspired on the love I have for you. Over a year we been with eachother. Yet, it feels like we are more apart than together. You are out of town more than not. I…I need you. Anna needs you.
I been back for no more over an hour. Who knew my trip to Scotland would take this long.
-she moves over to him as she places a hand on his forearm- How you been?
I had an hutch that it would be a long one. Your trips seem to get longer and longer.
*backs away when she touches him* I’m okay. Business is good so far. Yourself?
Well I guess I was
But not any more!
Not anymore is exactly what is happening here.
So might I ask why the sudden change of leaving your safety blanket of an apartment?
*slumps down outside the diner* Well this place looks the same. Guess it never changes.
Talking to yourself is the first signs of old age. You okay mate?
Maybe just this doctor.
Wh-when did you get back into town? I thought….
Well, sort of… I’ve been in town for a while I just was kind of hanging out in my apartment. Haha.
So you’re a hermit in someways? No judgment here. We all get like that time to time.
