Spend time alone.

She hated wet saunas. He sat alone, sweating until he emerged for a shower and lunch. She would ask “how was the sweatbox today?”, and he’d answer “Bloody lovely”.

After she went, everything was manageable. She’d shown him how to cook.. so that was sorted. He knew to keep himself clean and laundered, got himself out of the house every day. The strange thing was the sauna. He had to laugh. It was the one place she never set foot in, and yet it was the place he missed her the most. He blubbered like a sook and occasionally even had a bit of a chat to her.

In the end, she was in the sauna with him. He learned to welcome that, and loved it more.

“I SAID IT’S TIME TO GO HOME”. 

To Sandie he looks like a fish, his mouth opening and closing. 

DOOF DOOF DOOF

“WHAAAAT???”

She reaches to grab his shirt, but he is already out the door and heading for the corner. Astonishingly, she knows she can fly… yes really fly… and swoops down the steps behind him, landing effortlessly by his side.

“I’ve called a ride. Are you coming with me?” He looks tired and shitty. “Please don’t puke in the Uber”.

But magically and so swiftly that it takes her breath away, Sandie is flying again. This time up and over the heads of the people queueing for taxis, over the bored bouncers and  back into the front door of the club, into its throbbing embrace.
