The car pulled up
at the driveway of the main door of our condo.
I got out of the car and faced them.

"Thank you for the ride home.
I'll head up now."
I said, bending down
looking through the car window.

"No,"
Shawn said,
as he opened the car door on the other side
And stepping out,
buttoning his suit.
"I'll be coming with you."

I was surprised
but happy.
"Okay."

We headed to our suite.
I pressed my index finger
on the scanner to open the door.

The door opened and I head in
Taking off my shoes.
"Um, thanks for taking me home."
I said.
"You can head back to work now."

"I'll go later.."
He said walking behind me,
removing his shoes.

"It's really okay.
I'm not sick or anything."
I said, not wanting to be a burden on him
And it was a fact that I wasn't sick.

His gaze met mine.
"You are.
You've never took a sick day before."

I couldn't respond.
It was true
But I wasn't sick.
I felt guilty but
I wanted to spend some time with him
Even if it was just a few minutes.

"Okay...."

He cooked a plain porridge for me
As I went to take a shower.
I sat down on the kitchen table
And he sat across from me.

The porridge was really plain
but I ate it all
It was the first time he cooked for me.
I was happy.

"Do you want anything else?"
He asked.

I felt like I've used up all my luck.
I knew that the happiness I am feeling will end

Like any emotion,
Happiness was only for a moment
and won't last.

That applies for fear,
sadness
and everything else.

And
It was probably because I thought that this chance wouldn't come again
or the spur of happiness that I felt
that lead me to say these selfish words,
but I did.

"Can you come home early today?"
