Who: Anthony & Veronica
What: Post-saving Michael, Anthony makes a last-ditch effort to save his relationship
When: Monday afternoon
Where: Veronica's place
Even though he had gone to Lebanon for a very good reason, Anthony had known, as he left New York, that he was basically running away. Sending that letter and then skipping town was not exactly the best thing he'd ever done, but he had needed to go. But he also knew that he needed to come back now.
He hadn't been back to his office since he'd gotten back from Kansas, instead he'd mostly paced around his apartment and quietly worked on the ulcer he was pretty sure he had. He'd even called Antonio, who had sighed a lot, and finally shouted over his constant talking to get him to be quiet.
"You know what you have to do," Antonio said. "You knew before you called me. Didn't you?"
"...You are so not helpful," Anthony said.
Antonio laughed softly in his ear. "Not even remotely," he said, and he hung up.
And Anthony did know what he had to do. So he'd set out for Veronica's house on foot, meeting hardly anyone on the journey there. It was vaguely unsettling to see this section of town so quiet, but New York was still reeling from Hurricane Sandy. He arrived at her door and knocked, hands in his jacket pockets, fidgeting on her front step while he waited for someone to come to the door.
