How Could you?
I waited for you. Impatiently, I’ll admit. My anxiety built all day. By evening I was checking every couple minutes to see if you were here. Looking out windows, opening doors, even walking outside to see if I could see you.
Between 9 PM and 1 AM. Your schedule, not mine.
Now today the weather’s all wrong.
I know I didn’t get the days mixed up. You were very specific. I also know I didn’t get the times wrong. I know how speedy you are. Five million miles an hour speedy.
I waited up until midnight and there was no sign of you. All I saw was Jupiter and Venus.

When will you return, Aurora? When?
