madeline had just wanted a night out for once, and as it was saturday night and she didn’t have work the following day, she took advantage. she had been rushing, causing her to leave her phone on the counter as she ran out of the apartment to get her taxi. she hadn’t realized until it was too late to head back, not wanting to add money onto her taxi ride. hours passed as she bar hopped, just enjoying her time dancing with strangers and having just enough drinks to loosen up but not enough to leave her stumbling into the taxi as she left the bar at around 1am. as she walked up to her apartment, she let herself in, trying to stay quiet as she pushed the door open, but as she saw milez in the living room, she knew it was too late. “before you say anything, i just left my phone,” she said, gesturing to her phone on the counter as she walked over to it. “you know you need to stop worrying, milez. i’m not a child.” she crossed her arms over her chest, just waiting to hear what he had to say.
