from They Made The Effort

Ski bags and suitcases. It was that time of year. She went to the toilet to change liner. The cramps were starting. She popped two Nurofen out of their blisters and scooped water from the tap. She wasn't going to let this spoil her day out, her jolly.

They frisked her thoroughly, but she didn't have to take her boots off. The gate was quiet. She sat down next to the window. It was still dark outside, all she could see was her reflection and the emptiness behind her. The flight wouldn't be busy. She was glad. She thought about the day ahead, about how they would spend it. She needed this. She wanted to see him. Just this once. It wouldn't come to anything. It couldn't.
