“Babe.” He says shaking your shoulder.
“Okay.” You say sitting up.
You had driven back home to see his parents for his birthday.
“Liyah’s waiting patiently for you.” He says and it’s then that you notice that he’s got your door open and is standing in front of you.
“Oh.” You giggle, resting your head on his shoulder.
He chuckles and kisses the side of your head.
“I’m not gonna see you all weekend.” He whines, looking back at Liyah who is waiting at the door.
“And it’s my birthday.”
“We’ll celebrate when we get back home.”
“Can you hurry?” She asks, bouncing on her toes.
“Go see her.” He says patting your leg.
This is how family visits went.
You were swept away with his sister when you visited his home.
He was swept away with your brother when you visited your home.
It’s just how it goes.
