It had taken much longer than Tina would have liked, but she finally had found time to pop by Jules to pick up her ring. It was a surprise for Miguel, she’d been back home for a few days now, but she’d left the ring at Juliet’s. She had wanted to be home first, see if he still felt like home.
Tina arrived home from work early for once, taking a half day in order to surprise her husband. Just before she had apparated from her office, her stomach had clenched with nerves that she’d find him there with someone else. She cleared the thought, scolding herself for such ridiculousness, before she apparated into their living room in his flat.
Even though she’d been home a few days, she let out a shaky little breath at seeing the living room. The ring suddenly felt so heavy in her pocket, but she was determined to do this. She loved her husband, she was sure this was just one of those rough spots. She was certain they could get out of this.
“Miguel? Are you home?” she called out, finally moving from the spot she had arrived at near the front door. “I took a half day, they didn’t mind since I’ve been working so much overtime.” Tina nervously tugged at her sweater, and patting her pocket again to be sure the ring was still there. She knew it was, it was so heavy, like ten thousand rocks were in her pocket.
