#135 I’ll Leave You Alone (200 words)

Inspired by: To Be Alone with You

Ein entered the newly acquired Seward Skyward Expedition building. Seemingly overnight after Ein put up his money from the plane heist, Reggie bought office space, had it furnished, and staffed. 

Reggie sat behind his desk, scanning reports, already hard at work.

“This looks like a serious operation,” Ein said, sitting in a chair across from Reggie. 

“You can’t get to the moon by accident. Everyone here is focused on one thing, and that’s to bring a chunk of the moon and land it in our hands.”

“How long do you think it will take?”

“It could take years, but hopefully, it’s just months. I’d love to do it by Thanksgiving. If I had my notes, it would be a breeze.”

“What happened to them?”

Reggie spun around and gazed pensively over the Chesapeake Bay. 

“After I left Beacon earlier in the year, I met a woman and fell in love. It was a brief affair. We had the same suitcase, and she must have grabbed it by mistake.”

“Bummer.”

“You loved me?” a woman’s voice asked from the doorway. 

Ein and Reggie spun around and saw Charlotte standing in there. 

“I’ll just leave you alone now,” Ein said, excusing himself.
