If You Come Home

by inkspotz

Entering the room, he noticed how stale the air was. He also noticed a letter sitting on the dresser beside the bed.

He moved towards the letter, picking it up as he moved to take up a seat on the edge of the bed. He unfolded the letter gently and began to read.

“My dearest Jake...

I don't know when, or if, you'll ever come home again. However, there are a few things you should remember.

Remember that you like your coffee at half past nine. Remember to set the coffee pot the night before.

Remember that we need to get milk at the store. We're always out of milk. You always ask, and you always have to get some before coming home.

Remember that we have our favorite show on on Tuesday nights. Don't work too late that day.

Remember that your work is important, but that I think you're far more important than it.

Remember that, whether if it works or not, you're still a genius to me.

But above all else, please remember that no matter what happens, I will always love you.”

Tears in his eyes he refolded the letter and tucked it into his pocket. He turned to lean down and kiss her forehead.

She wasn't present, and she never would be again. It was all his fault.

Sure his time machine had worked.

Sure it seemed like he had all the time in the world.

But now that the machine was broken, the time he should have spent with his loved one was gone forever.

He stood up from the bed and walked out of the hospital room as the nurse stared after him. This was one thing he would remember for the rest of his life.

@penny @tdog16 @pluzoo Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad that you enjoyed it! :) I was worried about how it would be received since it was a bit on the darker side.
