Amber was heading back to the west coast. Things were verry dufferent now then when she came. She hated to leave. She would miss matt. She hopped that the summer would go fast.
She slept fairly soundly. She was fairly tired. She fell asleep and slept though the night until her alarm went off.
Matt went to bed early. He slept though the night. He did not want to see her go but he knew the sooner she left, the sooner she would return. At least that was the hope.
His alarm went off. He got up and showered. He wore a blue collered shirt and jeens. He did not wear jeens often but did on ocasion. He wore jeens when he had worked at a conatruction compony. He was a bit preppy. He did always try to look presentable.
He headed out. He drove to his mom’s house. He parked the car and got out of the car.he headed to the door.
Amber got up with her alarm. She showered and got dressed. Mat’s mom had gotten the cofee ready the night before. All she had to do was turn it on. She did that. She had a cup while she waited for matt to arive.
She had brought her suit case downstairs. She had packed fairly light. She relaxed for a few minutes and tried to wake up. She got a text from matt saying he was on his way. She text him back saying that she would be hear.
She wore a blue blouse and denim skirt and sandles. She waited for matt. He came in. They tried to be qiet so as not to wake any one up. “Hi hunnie!” he said. “Hi babe. There is plenty of cofee left in the pot.i packed us cerial bars. Your mom wanted to make breakfast for us but i told her that would stress you out.”amber said.”yes it would. Thank you. “He said.
“You and time constraints. “She said.”if i have a task,time stops until it is complete. “He said. “Yes i know all about that.”amber said. They laughed qietly.
They drank cofee and sat down for a few minutes.”are you awake? “He asked.”i am getting there. I would like to fall asleep on the plane. I never sleep on planes.”she told him.”i am hoping to go back to bed when i get home. I dont know if that is actualy going to happen. “He said.
“I apreciate you driving me back.” she said.”my pleasure. It gives us more time together. “He said. She smiled. She loved his smile. He had a special smile he only gave when he was around her.
“Your not sick of me?”she asked. “Not at all.” he told her. “Good. Just making sure. “She said in response. “Promise me you will call when after you land.”he said.”i will. You have my word.”she said. “Good.”he said.
After a while they decided to get ready to head out. She used the bathroom while he loaded the car. Then she left the bathroom,he used the bathroom. Then they headed out.
He took her hand. They held hands as they went to the car. They got inside. He held her hand as he drove. The car pulled out of the driveway and headed to the airport.
He prayed for the jouney. Then they went. “So. When did you think that you might like me as more then a friend?” she asked.
“A few days after dad died. When i coukd not keep it any more. I broke down in front of you. You told me to stop holding it in. I realized i could be myself around you. I knew you did not need me to be strong all the time. That was the first time i consideres a nore serious relationship. I was not ready to act on it yet. “He said.
“I remember that. I noticed things changed between us. I suspected. “Shr said. “When was it for you?” he asked.”once you stoped thinking i was tring to turn your sister penticostal,you started to open up to me. You might not have realized it. I had a crush on you. I was afraid to act on it. ” she said .
“No i did not know. I gues i can be kind of obvious. I want to do right by you. I know in many ways, we are verry different. It will require some adjustment. I realy beleve God has brought us together “he said.
“I am so glad to hear you say that. I beleve that too. It will require a lot of adjustment for both of us. ” she said.
He let her put on k love. She was glad of that. She knew music would be obe of many isues they would have to work on.
“I will try not to be qirky. ” he said.she chuckled. “I will try but i dont know how far i wil suceed. Like i said i am looking forward to being a pastor’s wife .” she said. “I know you will be a great one.” he told her.
“I know i am going to have relly on the help of the holly sprit. I want to be. I want to be the best help meet i can for you.” she said. “I have not doubt you will suceed. He that begun a good work in you is able to perfrom it until the day of Christ. ” he said. “I know he will do the same for you. “She said.
“I am sure we will encorge eachother in our walk with the lord. “He said.”i am sure of that. ” she said. “We can serve the lord together. I have always wanted to do ministry with my wife. “He said.
” you have a tendency to hold things in. You try to deal witg things on your own. No more ok.i know it wont come easy for you but you have to share things with me. Ok?”she asked.
“Ok i will. “He said. She chuckled.” i am not everyone else. I am a part of you. I have your rib!” she exclaimed. He laughed. “Ok. Rib thief!” he said. She laughed.
“I would like to be able to tell you that is the last thing i will steal from you but it might be. That blue swet shirt of yours is really nice. ” she said.
“Do i need to check your bag to see if you have anything of mine?” he asked.”no i did not take any thing of yours this time. ” she said.
“I am prety sure stealing is wrong in the penticostal church as well. “He said. “One day we will be one flesh. It will be ok. ” he said. “You are coveting though. ” he said. “Ok. You might have a point there. ” she said. He laughed.”i now understand none of my sweatshirts are safe. ” he declared. “No they are not! ” she said.he roled his eyes and turned his head. She laughed.
He found he never laughed as hard as when he was around her. She brought out his sillyness. He tended to be reserve, serious. Around her he could let his hear down. She loved getting him to open up.
They were both a bit sad when the car neared the air port. They both got a bit sad when the car neared the parking area. He parked the car.they got out and he got her luggage. They walked hand in hand to the terminal.
“This is where we are suposed to part ways for now!” she told him. He hugged her. “I promised myself if i would not break down. ” she said. “I made the same pledge. Oh well!”he said.
She held on to him tightly. He held tightly as well. They both started to cry. “I am going to miss you. ” he said.”i am going to miss you. We will get though this. ” she said. “I know that. I love you amber. ” he said “i loved you” she said.
It was a lonly walk to the car. He missed her already. He knew this was coming but it was harder then he thought it would be. He knew that it would not be easy. It was far harder then he thought.
He got into the car. He felt tense. He got into the car. He started the car. He was going to change the radio station. He considered changing the station to espn or npr or putting on one of his hyim colections. He decided not to change the station. K love reminded him of her. He kept it on.
It was a hard drive home. He felt her absence. He cried a bit. He knew part of this was fitigue. He was exchausted emotionaly and physically. He knew that his tiredness was clouding his feelings.
The car pulled in to the drive way. He went inside his house. He went back to bed. He slept for a bit.
His phone rang. He answered it. “Hi babe. The plane landed. I made it safly there. ” she said. “I am so glad to hear that. I was not too woried but i was a bit concerned. ” he said. “I could tell. I know what you meen.i am always like that flying. ” she said.”i miss you. ” he said. “I miss you too. I will let you get back to bed..i will talk to you later. ” she said. “You got it. I love you.” matt said. “I love you too. “She said.
He hung up his cell phone. He went back to bed. He slept for a bit. He woke up. He missed her alot. He hoped that he would see her again soon. He beleved he would.
It would be a dificult summer as she told him. This could be a good thing.she could be a growing experience for both of them. He would learn from this. He knew that in the grand scheme of thing, it would be a drop in the bucket.
He would wait. He would be patcient. He trusted that the lord would bring them back together.
She went home to her apartment. She loved to stare at her engagement ring.she missed him as much as he missed her. She knew that this was part of the lords plan. She knew that it would work out. They would both trust and wait.
End of wedding party.
Matt tries to go on with his life. He keeps active with his church. Amber gets ready to move. It is a hard sumer but the lord works behind the scenes to reunite these two.
