At the end of your shift, you closed the bar up; Rob watching you as he waited around. You motioned to him letting him know that you were ready to leave and he followed you out to your car, both of you walking quietly. It was nice to have this moment with him again. Regardless of the fact that he had been a colossal dick, you had missed him. You told yourself that you had missed the fooling around, but just having him near you was enough to make you feel relaxed again. You both got into you car, as you usually did when you left the bar together.
“My place?” He asked as you pulled out of the parking lot.
“No,” you replied as you focused on driving, “we’ll go to my place. Bad things happen between us when I go home with you.”
“You know, if we go to your place, you can’t sneak out on me in the middle of the night,” he joked, smiling over at you. You tried not to smile in return, still feeling a bit ticked off over how he had treated you, but that smile and those blue eyes made it impossible for you to let your anger be known.
“We’re talking tonight,” you reminded him. “That’s it.”
“Okay, I get it. That’s cool.” He turned his attention from you, staring out the window as you drove the rest of the way to your place in silence. You had lived with Briana for a while, and only recently decided it was time to leave and get your own place. Luckily, you had managed to save up most of your tip money over the years in an account that Tyler never had access to. The money came in handy when it was time to get your apartment. It wasn’t anything fancy, and it wasn’t really your own; but it was enough for you.
