The city was loud. More than usual. Customers were in and out of your bookstore all day, a lot more than usual after some celebrity had come into your shop. You were exhausted and just wanted to sleep. You closed the doors an hour early, serving the last few patrons before leaving.
You stopped by your favorite coffee shop on the way home, grabbing a chai tea latte to warm you up. Sirens echoed off the buildings, aided by the blaring of taxi cabs and street performers. You tried to block out the sound by putting in earbuds under your beanie, but they didn’t work very well. You opted to just speed walk to your apartment you shared with Alex. You breathed heavy at the noise, wishing it would just stop.
You made it to your apartment, unlocking the door and slipping inside. Alexander looked up from the kitchen bar. “Hey Y/N. Just finishing up the snacks. You ready for tonight?” he asked, grinning at you. Shit. You had forgotten it was game night with the guys. You were way too tired to play.
“Actually, Alex, I think I’m going to skip tonight. You guys can still play. Long day. Loud,” You yawned. Alex looked up at you, cocking an eyebrow. You hated doing this to him, as game night was the only night you could get him to relax, but you were exhausted.
