Corrin felt a hand brush over her shoulder then lips pressed to the back of her neck. She closed her eyes and smiled. “Silas,” she murmured.
He moved around in front of her and held out his hand to pull her up from her chair. “You’ve been working for a solid two hours. I think it’s time for a break.”
She just blinked at him. “It couldn’t have been that long.”
He just kept smiling at her. “It was. Come on, I’ve got a movie ready to go and was just about to get the popcorn.”
She turned back to the computer, saved her document then closed it and headed into the living room. Apparently he had been right, it had been a little more than two hours since she’d started.
He settled onto the couch beside her a couple minutes later, a large bowl of popcorn in his hands. He slid one arm around her as she hit play for the movie. she liked the way they could just sit together and watch a movie, but it felt incomplete. It never felt quite right when it wasn’t all three of them there together.
“Jeremiah should be here,” she said.
Silas kissed her cheek then the corner of her mouth. “Pretty sure he’d like to be here, too. Tomorrow night he should be.”
She settled more into him, enjoying his touch. She’d enjoy it even more when Jeremiah was back with them, completing what the three had become to each other.
Today is Day 27 of Just Jot It January and the prompt is “incomplete”. I think this one will actually take place after the end of the story, but I know what I’m working toward in this one.
