They lay in their bed holding just holding hands. Cassandra was still awake unable to sleep. She would sleep when he was gone. David was lying next to her dozing off and on. He did not want to leave her in the morning, but he knew he had to there was no choice about it. Part of his father's company headquarters were being moved to Britton and his father told him six months ago that David would be taking charge of overseeing the project for the first three years. He loved her so much he didn’t know how he was going to live without her. There was no possible way of seeing her within those three years because he father had forbid it. David being the good son he is wasn’t going to argue with his father.

“Cassandra?” David asked not sure if his wife was awake. They had been married only two years. He couldn't believe his dad was doing this, but it would be a lie to say that he did not want to better company by doing this.

“Yes, honey?” she said quietly.

“I love you, Cassandra,” he said wrapping his arms around her.

“I love you, David,” she said as she snuggled into his arms. Her eyes began to tear. She knew he had to go they had talk about this for months that did not mean she liked the fact much more than when he told her.

He knew she was crying. He hated it because he was the reason she was crying. In the beginning he had tried every way possible to comfort her, but in the end he just let her cry because there were not any amounts of I’m sorrys or everything is going to be ok that would change the fact that he was leaving. He wanted to tell her that he would stay with her and not go. They both knew he had to go. Now she faced him, her tears had stopped mostly. He brushed them from her cheek.

They both managed to fall asleep eventually. Then there was a knock on the door. It was Jude, David’s manservant. David got up trying not to wake Cassandra. He answered the door and left to get ready. He would be back later to say good-bye. Cassandra got up and realized David was gone. She paniced and called her servant, Mollie.

“Mollie, David hasn’t left yet has he?” she asked urgently.

“Not yet dear, he’s in the dining room eating breakfast,” Mollie said, “I’ll be up in a minute.”

Cassandra was able to calm down after talking to Mollie. Then, she went to get ready. She pick out a sundress that she knew was his favorite on her. It was dark blue with little light blue flowers all over. She walked into the dining room.

“I was going to let you sleep later,” David said when she entered.

“Well you scared me. I thought you had already left,” Cassandra said and took the seat next to him.

He squeezed her hand and said, “ There is no way I was going to leave without say goodbye.”

Then, it was time for him to go. Everything had been packed and loaded onto the jet. They hugged each other and kissed for a long time. As they were in that moment they just wanted to stay in it forever. David pulled away and said, “Cassandra take care. I’ll be back before you know it. I love you.”

“I love you too, David. Here take this,” she handed him a letter.

David looked at it a little confused. “I figured this would be the easiest way to keep in contact because video chat could be sketchy and phone calls would get expensive. Just write me when you have time or you get tired of working,” Cassandra said smiling.

“Thanks Cassandra. I don’t think I would have ever thought of this. I’ll see you later,” David said hugging her one last time and then he was gone.
