WHO: Natalie & The Baron WHEN: Wednesday afternoon WHERE: His apartment WHAT: HI, ARE YOU OKAY??
Stuck in Baltimore was the very last thing that Natalie wanted. Watching the news reports from her hotel room were awful and she was chewing her nails down to the stubs with nerves.
So when flight bans were finally lifted on Monday morning, Natalie was desperate to get back to New York. But then, so were thousands of other people who'd be stranded in cities across the country and the rest of the world. With such a backlog of flights, the New York airports were going crazy and it wasn't until Wednesday that Natalie was able to get home. (Behind the scenes at JFK Airport everything was mental and Natalie was glad that she only had to deal with it on the surface level. She couldn't imagine having to actually be working there with all this going on.)
She texted Con to let him know she was in and heading to his place and then zipped her bike through the streets, trying to spot any differences. But it just looked like New York.
At Con's she let herself in and dropped her keys on the sideboard. "Hey, I'm home!" she called out, shrugging off her leather jacket.
