Outside the airport, I hail a taxi to take me back to my apartment. As I enter the room everything feels different. I look around and notice just how empty my apartment really is and, more importantly, how empty it makes me feel.
I pick up my phone to Skype Allison. It’s ten at night in San Francisco but with the time zone nine hours ahead, it is seven in the morning in Paris.
Allison answers by only clicking the button on and not holding the phone up so I can see her, “Hey, baby.”
“Hello… I made it home.”
“Oh, good. How was your flight?”
“Long. I miss you already…”
“I miss you, too,” her voice fading away.
“Why can I only see the ceiling of the hotel room? Hold your phone up so I can see you.”
There’s a long pause before she picks up the phone and now I can see why she was avoiding the camera. “Is this better?” she tries to smile.
“Baby, please don’t tell me you were crying,” I say in agony.
Allison’s eyes fill up with tears as she tries to fight it. “I’m sorry.”
I interrupt her, there is no reason she should ever be sorry. “No, I’m sorry. I don’t ever want to hurt you. To see you like this is killing me.”
Allison looks up to the ceiling to try and stop her tears. “Charlie… Ugh, I just…”
I plead, “No, don’t say anything. Please. I can’t hear you say that.”
“No, Charlie, I won’t. I love you. Please don’t think we’re over. That’s not what I was about to say. I just don’t know. It’s all still so new. So complicated,” she laughs, “but we’re used to complicated, right?”
I smile, thankful for her playful attitude. “Yes, we are. I love you, Allison. Please know that. I need to know that we’re ok.”
“Charlie, I told you, we’re ok. Just give me time,” she closes her eyes and I can’t help but wonder if she believes what is coming out of her mouth.
I can’t think like that though so I try to push the idea out of my head, only focusing on her words, not her body language. We sit in silence, staring at each other through the blurry image displayed on our phones. Thousands of miles apart, having no clue what the fuck is going on.
Allison breaks the silence first, “I’m sorry baby, but I have to go. I have to meet the rest of the crew in just a few minutes.”
I take a deep breath, “Ok, I love you.”
“I love you, too. Bye baby,” she blows a kiss into the phone.
I smile, “Till then…”
