It was still dark when he woke the first time, even though he felt he’d been asleep for hours, a slice of moonlight & the glow of the street lights below luminous through a gap in the curtains. The room was unfamiliar, and it took him a moment to work out where he was. It took a moment more to realise he wasn’t alone. Familiar & unfamiliar all at once, the sight of Lauren sleeping next to him reminded him just how much he’s missed her. The uncertainty of what the morning may bring wasn’t enough to stop him smiling as he shifted closer & wrapped an arm around her, and drifted back to sleep.
