It’s 4:13 a.m. when the call finally comes, a harsh ringing of your phone against the soft rumble of thunder from the storm.
Over the course of the past two years, you’ve done nothing but learn to expect things at the worst times. Loud text notifications come during the middle of lectures when professors take a pause, seven missed calls are what you get after daring to have a night out with friends, and, much like tonight, FaceTime sessions only appear to happen in the dead of night. The cycle repeats itself more than once within the span of a week, and, truth be told, it’s more than a little bit exhausting.
Apparently, the universe has firmly decided that you are not allowed to sleep and date at the same time.
