I knew it was going to be a bad day when even the radio was against me. I should’ve taken the hint when I woke with another headache and just called in sick, but there is simply too much work to do.

“Morning already…?” She murmured, still somewhere between gleeful dreams and coherence.
I spun around, dull pain be dammed, to kiss her nose and lips “Five more minutes, beloved.”
