The flight back from New York took forever. Fitz was picking me up and we couldn’t wait to see each other again. The airplane landed, Alyssa, Monique and I grabbed our luggage and headed out of the airport to wait for our rides. It felt weird parting with Alyssa and Monique having had spent the last two weeks with them. Saying goodbye felt sad but I caught a glimpse of Fitz driving up in the car and gave them both a hug. I thanked them for the amazing adventures and told them how much I loved them. I quickly hopped into the car and said hello to my fella. I felt nervous and my heart was skipping. We pulled into our garage and Fitz carried my bag up to the apartment while I talked his ear off about all the things I saw. Once inside, I immediately opened up my suitcase in the middle of the living room to pull out the gift I had gotten him, a snow globe with New York’s skyrises. Fitz took the globe out of the box and smiled, told me he loved me and that he had missed me too much. He grabbed my face and kissed me and gave me a big bear hug. Clothes flew off in the kitchen and we ended up in the living room. Coming up for air and some shots of vodka, I felt I was finally home. I never wanted to leave this warm and happy place again.
