i want to fly

Ophelia's phone rang.

She picked it up. "Yes?"

"Little song bird? Do you need me to pick you up?" Hades said softly.

She smiled, looking up at the moon. "No. I'll catch a ride. It's a nice night."

He smiled. "Alright. I'm hurrying home okay? We can cuddle, and I promise, we'll stay together all day tomorrow just us."

She smiled. "Good. We'll go on a date too, right? Where are we going?"

She stepped out into the street.

"I was thinking something that suits us. Chicken nuggets, fries, top down, you pick the music?" He suggested, signing papers.

"That sounds perfect. Sounds like the first night we spent together."

He smiled, holding the phone with his shoulder. "I know. It was one of the best days of my life. After we get home, maybe we can watch a movie. I still don't know what kind you like."

She chuckled. "I think you'll be surprised."

"Tell me," he pressed.

"Nope," she grinned. "I'll tell you tomorrow."

He frowned. "How very inappropriate of you," he replied.

She just smiled, shaking her head. "I don't want to get off the phone with you. Keep talking, please?"

He smiled. "Of course."

Rain started to fall gently, a drizzle.

"What are you doing?" She asked.

"Signing paperwork, looking over proposal, assessing real estate, boring things. What about you?"

"Heading home, silly."

He smiled at her using the world home.

"Good. What do you want to eat?"

"Hm...coffee?" She remarked.

"Coffee? That's very inappropriate for night time, and it's not food."

"I'm craving it," she pouted.

He sighed. "I'll bring you a cup on my way."

They let the silence filter for a bit, as she kept walking.

"I want to tell you," he said suddenly.

"Tell me what?" She asked, looking up.

"Everything. But after our day together, alright?"

She nodded. "Sounds good."

He glanced out the window. "It's raining. Is it rainy over there too? You didn't leave with a coat."

"It's just a drizzle. I like the rain."

He sighed with a smile. "Just be a careful. Don't get sick, or we'll spend our day together with you in bed."

"Oh I'll be fine!" She said easily.

"Sir?" Hades looked up.

"Yes?"

"Is it possible to do the meeting today?"

He looked at his watch. "How long do you think it'll take?"

"An hour at the very least."

"No I have to be home soon. What about tomorrow?"

He sighed, putting his face back to the phone. "Songbird, I have a meeting that may run late. I need to do it tonight so we can have tomorrow off."

"I'm not thrilled, but it's worth it for us to have our day together."

He smiled. "Thank you, Ophelia. I love you."

"I love you to—what's that?"

An odd noise hit his ears.

"What's What?" He asked.

"Ophelia?"

"Ophelia can you hear me?"
