She managed not to cry when she left his hotel room. She told him to take a shower as she left because she didn't want a sappy farewell that will make her weep the entire day. So they left it at that. The memory of their last day together was to be remembered as something extraordinary and beautiful.
When she arrived in front of Nathan's villa, she took a long deep breath to ready her for what's waiting. She took long, slow and dragging steps toward the house, expecting to see both Nathan and Kelsey for another awkward social situation. The house was quiet, she opened the sliding door from the balcony and stepped into the kitchen. There was only Nathan.
Nathan sat on the island stool, not looking his best. "Kelsey ... umm ... she left."
She raised her eyebrows, put down her bags on the floor. "Left where?"
He looked down on the kitchen counter, played with his phone then turned it off. "She went back to Gastonburry."
