Maybe I should have called Tara before coming back. But it was sort of a snap decision, you know? As in, I snapped. Hiding in the USA and avoiding calling her again, scared that out next conversation would be her telling me that we were over, that she couldn't take this anymore... The thing is? I wouldn't blame her. I'd have to step back and let her just... go. The horrible premonition that this would happen kept recurring in my daydreams, so... I was being avoidance girl.

Up to the point that I was back in the UK with a suitcase next to me and I had told no onme about it, let alone Tara. I'd call a taxi. Yeah. Or I could just call Tara. Gods. Dragging my suitcase over to the pay phone, I put in some coinage and my finger hovered over the numbers. Just call her. Just call her. Let her come and pick you up and you can put all the pieces back together. Or... call a taxi.

It was a few seconds later that I had dialled, listening to the ring on the other end. Hopefully she'd pick up.

(Open to Tara - she doesn't have to pick up unless you want her to, Rach)

The phone rang. I wasn't used to it ringing much these days, but maybe it was Dawnie, so I picked up. I still felt a bit drained from the Triffy spell, so I probably sounded quite out of it.

"H-hello?"

"H-hello?"

I bit my bottom lip. Okay, say something, dork. "H-hey Tara," I managed, glancing around me. A nice looking elderly man waited patiently for the phone a few feet back and I turned back into the booth almost shyly. "I... I kinda need to talk to you, and um, to tell you that I-I'm here. In England. At the airport." Eloquant. I winced.

Willow was here? Here in England? For a minute I just held the phone in my hand, feeling the blood rush to my head. I had so grown used to the idea that she wasn't coming back that this was a huge shock.

"Y-you're here?" I said stupidly. "Right. You j-just said that." I took a deep breath and released it, trying to calm myself. "W-what terminal?" She told me. "O-ok, I'll come get you."

I put down the phone and sat on the bed for a while, trying to calm down. Then I got my things together and headed out, using one of the Council's cars.
