As their week together drew to a close, Faye was getting antsy. She didn’t want Daggum to go! But there was nothing they could do about that. He had to go back to his assignment and she had to stay here. That’s just how it was.

It didn’t mean it didn’t suck!

But she wanted their last evening together to be special. But there was no way she could possibly match that extraordinary first day together. Not a chance. And so Faye decided it wasn’t worth trying. To match or surpass, of course. But it didn’t mean she didn’t want to try.

She lay on their bed (she hadn’t bothered using her room at all) with a PADD while Dag was having a workout and she was scribbling ideas with a stylus.

They all sucked! Why was she so bad at this? Maybe because she was nearly forty and had only just had her first date a few days ago? Uggh!

A few minutes later, she felt her chest tighten and she chucked the padd across the room. It bounced off the wall near the door and the cracking noise ripped through her in a satisfying way. Maybe her mom was on to something with the whole cathartic release thing.


Daggum came through the door a few minutes later and as was greeted by a crunch as his foot met the PaDD. He looked down, looked up at Faye and smiled. “So either you are frustrated by a computer… which I know isn’t the case… or you are frustrated by something else.” He fell down on the bed next to her, using his mass to bounce her up and closer to him. He wrapped sweaty arms around her and laughed. “So what do I need to do to make you smile again, huh?” and he squeezed her to his damp with sweat shirt, holding her fast and nuzzling her neck.

Daggum, Faye’s Fiance
