I come home from work and it has been a long day. You already know that because you heard it in my voice when you called me during the day.
"My day sucked" I stressed, almost on the verge of tears.
"You'll be okay," you tell me, in a soothing voice. "I will see you when you get home."
I hang up the phone and take a few moments to gather my thoughts.
I finish my day and head to the car. I get settled and on the road, when I start to cry. I don't know why, but the tears seem to stream down my face, without reason.
I pull in the drive and walk into the house.
You meet me at the door, handing me a single red rose, making me crack a small smile. "dinner is in the oven," you tell me. "I have a hot bubble bath run for you, with a glass of wine." I just stare at him, almost as if this is was all surreal. "Go relax," you whisper, giving me a gentle kiss and turning me in the direction of our large bathroom, just off the master bedroom.I head into the bathroom, let my clothes fall to the floor, and slowly step into the tub. The hot water surrounds me as I lower myself into the bubbles. There are candles lit around the room, and a glass of red wine waiting for me. I smile to myself, as I take a sip of the wine and then let my body slide deep inside the water.
