I got up and got some coffee while the computer booted, then got Casey up, dressed, and fed. I dropped him off at school at the usual time. I saw Daniel’s car arrive, but I deliberately avoided looking that way. I was able to smile in spite of him being there because my thoughts were on Brad.
I headed home and played around on Facebook and AFF until my free book & paid emails had arrived, then took care of those.
Once my emails were done, I settled into work. I worked for a couple hours, then took a bit of a break before getting another hour in.
I picked Casey up at the usual time, relieved to see no sign of Daniel. We headed back home and he got on the toilet and I resumed work. I had 3 more hours for the day.
I ordered some pizza for dinner. When it arrived, I quickly stepped away to get it and serve some for me and Casey. I continued working while I ate, eager to finish my work at a reasonable time in hopes that I could see Brad after getting Casey to bed.
Once I was done with work, I hopped in the shower. After I got out, I got Casey to do his bedtime stuff. I got him all snuggled into bed, then went back to the computer. I was messing around on Facebook and AFF and finally heard from Brad. He said he’d had to talk to his mom, and it was about stuff he doesn’t talk about. I said we could chat about something else, or I could offer a distraction, or if he wanted to be left alone to just let me know. He said I could come over around 9:30.
I got on Fallout 76 for a little while, just messing around with stuff trying to get XP. I didn’t quite make it to level 30 before it was time to head over to Brad’s house.
We hung around chatting for a while. He did most of the talking, and I just listened. He eventually commented on how quiet I was being, not realizing what was on my mind. I didn’t want to bring it up before we had one last foray, and he let it go without me having to say anything.
We headed upstairs and I can definitely call what we did lovemaking. When we were done he fell asleep, so I wasn’t able to say anything. I just went to sleep myself instead.
