I smiled to myself as I walked into my home. Well, not technically my home, but it was as close as home got. The smell of tea invaded my senses. Olive was most likely brewing it. I could hear Millard shouting at Hugh off in the distance. Silly boys, they were most likely playing football once again.

I immediately walked upstairs to where my old room was located, hoping that it'd still be as I had left it.

Thankfully, it was.

Its good to be home. I thought to myself as I began unpacking. Three long years without seeing my closest friends. Yet not much had changed since 2013. It was still the same old September 3rd, 1943. (a/n I know its 1940 but in the film it was 1943, sorry) 

I jumped suddenly as I heard a crash. I whipped around only to see a boy scrambling to pick up pieces of broken glass in the hallway right outside my door.

"Excuse me, are you alright?" I heard myself ask. I walked to the hallway as the boy strightened up and looked me in the eye.

"Just peachy," he replied. We remained standing, just staring at each other. Waiting to see who'd look away first.

"Long time no see, Nini," he smirked.

"Apparently not long enough," I replied. I immediately turned and walked into my room.

"I see you finally decided to come back."

I turned when I heard his accent. Enoch was leaning against the doorway, arms crossed, smug smirk, and slightly tamed hair.

"A shame really," I replied as I walked up to him, "I had hoped that by the time I finally came back, you'd be long gone."

He looked taken aback and was about to retort when I slammed the door shut. I suddenly wished I had never come home.
