Breann and I were exhausted. We planned breakfast in the cab ride to my hotel. I took a call from Ava. Breann shook her head when I finished.
"Be careful with her Caleb. A necessary evil is still evil."
I smirked and waved goodbye, then turned to see Ava in the lobby. We rode the elevator together to the fourth floor in silence.
"Do you need anything?"
I shook my head no and opened the room door. My phone vibrated. It was my wife. Ava approached, crossing the threshold.
"You're forgetting something Caleb."
She pressed her lips against mine.
