Henry was camped out at the kitchen table, going through the lists of texts he was going to need for his courses. They started in three weeks and he was already incredibly excited. He was making a little list on his phone from the information on the website from his laptop, because he was nothing if not a millennial.
He still hadn't told his parents he was going back to school. In fact, he wasn't even sure when the last time he had spoken to his parents was. And that was fine. He was getting by just fine without them. Maybe he could surprise them after finishing his first semester. That would be quite the thing!
He was still tapping on his phone and thinking about dinner when he heard a knock at the door. He hadn't ordered food, so he wasn't sure who it was. Standing, he made his way to the door and a quick glance at the peephole told him it was Iestyn. What a delightful surprise. Grinning happily, Henry swung the door open. "Hi, honey!" he said, beyond happy to see Iestyn.
