She looked at Travis from the other side of the booth and grinned before she stood up and moved so she could slide in next to him. [b "I wouldn't want to be stuck in a little town with anyone else."] she said as she reached down to grab her coffee. [b "I think it's smaller than our town, but you have to admit, it has a certain charm to it."]
She thought about his question and nodded. [b "Exploring and shopping sounds fun. There was a little boutiqe around the block that I want to check out... What would you think about staying another night? We can just hit the road bright and early in the morning?"]
Her arm wrapped through his. [b "This has been the best little get a away that I've ever had. I know now that all I'll ever need in this life to be happy, is you. Travis, it has always been you."] she explained. [b "I'm so glad that we found each other again.."] She leaned over and softly pressed her lips to his. [b "I love you."]
Wasn't the first time he had come to the small town they were in. And it wasn't the first time he had broken down there either. It was how he had known that it would be the half hour before anyone got to them. But during that wait, Travis could admit that he felt a little bad that Cori had been called by her momma at least twice and she had to remind the woman that he was with her and she would be fine. But on the up, it was good to see that her mother cared. His own actually would have been going crazy too if he had called her. But he had decided against it because he didn't want to give her anything else to worry about. Least of all him.
[b "Might be a fun project for the summers. Teach school semester and run a Bed and Breakfast over the holidays."] The man said when they had come to the Bed and Breakfast. It was by chance or by luck because the ONE hotel that was actually in town was booked. This place still had two rooms open, which the two took one of gratefully with it being late and them needing the sleep.
By lunchtime the next day, both had woken and were starving. It was lucky for them there was a small diner not far and the food was pretty decent. [b "They did say the truck should be up and running again in the early evening. Did you wanna explore and maybe do some shopping while we waited?"] He asked after taking a couple sips from his tea. He had no idea her father was just coming into the diner himself.
Travis was right. It was about thirty minutes before someone finally came along in a tow truck. She had never been so grateful to see a rusty old truck. Her mother had called her twice before the tow truck had gotten there. She said she didn’t like the idea of her being stuck in some little town they didn’t know anything about, but her Mother seemed to forget that she was with Travis. She had to reassure her that Travis wouldn’t let anything happen to her.
They had found a Bed and Breakfast by luck. The one hotel in town had been completely booked up. But the bed and breakfast had two rooms left. [b “You know. If I didn’t love teaching so much, I think it would be fun to open a Bed and Breakfast or even a little diner.”] she told Travis.
After they caught up on some much needed sleep, they headed to a little diner that was in the middle of town. It was lunch time and they were both starving.
The man knew the town the had ended up stranded outside of. Some weekends when he needed to get away he would come out here. It was a small and quaint town that always made him feel like he was back home. Probably why he wasn't freaking out that they had broken down like this. [b "Nah..it's fine baby girl. I should have showed you the map and the area before we started off."] He said with a small and guilty smile.
When she asked if he wanted her to call everyone, the man nodded. He could deal with ohone calls if he had to, but he hated them. Besides he had to find his card. So Cori would be better at the whole calling thing. Plus he knew she was less anxious when she had something to do.
[b "We have about half an hour if they're sending someone out. Might be a good time to tell ya that I've done this before. The breaking down...and just coming out here. We"ll be fine even if your daddy doesn't come."] Travis said and gave her a smile, his hand moving into hers as he leaned on the truck.
Cori calmed once she felt Travis’ hand squeeze her own. She wasn’t usually that easy to scare, but she had been almost in a dead sleep. [b “It’s fine. I’m sorry I reacted like that.”] she looked around and realized they were in the middle of nowhere, but then she heard Travis say there was a small town nearby, he must’ve drove through it while she was asleep.
[b “Do you want me to call the company?”] she asked as she unbuckled her seatbelt. [b “I’ll have to call momma and daddy and let them know, they’ll be worried. I’ll have my momma call yours too honey.”]
She found the number to the local garage and called and tried her best to explain where they were. He somehow knew, even with her sloppy directions. [b “Someone is on their way.”] she said to Travis after she had stepped out of the truck. [b “I called momma too, and she insisted that Daddy could come get us, but that we would be just fine.”]
The last days in the city where he had chosen to go to college passed like clockwork. Soon he and Cori were on the road, a seven hour drive to be exact to get back to their small town in Montana. It would be easy for her because she would sleep through most of it, which he didn't mind. Travis actually preferred to drive since one he knew that way, and two it was his truck.
The drive had just begun amd they were an hour and a half in when the truck jolted and all but died. The young woman at his side jolted awake with the now stalled engine and he sighed. [b "Seems the truck decided to breakdown... there's a small town near here that we can have it towed to. I'm sorry darlin'. Didn't mean to wake you or to scare you."] He said as his hand moved into hers to squeeze it and to hopefully calm her down a bit.
This meant that they would be late getting home. But on the bright side it meant a little more alone time, right?
The dinner with her parents and Travis family was gruesome to say the least. Their Momma’s were both at it again as to why they just wouldn’t give their love a second chance, and Cousin John kept snickering every single time. She and Travis sat apart, which was just almost torture.
The end of their trip had arrived and they were on their way back to their small town in Montana, it was about a seven hour drive back home. In all honestly, it wouldn’t be bad for her, because she knew she’d be asleep on no time at all, which she was. About an hour and a half in she was out like a light.
She was jolted awake as she felt the car slightly jolt and then it seemed to slow down. She looked over at Travis. Her eyes were wide and her heart was pounding. [b “What happened?”]
"Or so you're the girl Travis wrote about. The one he could never forget and would love to have anotjer chance with. How he was a damned fool to let the best thing in his life go." Frank said. Yeah he had read some of Travis' journal but had been both boredom AND wanting to understand his roommate.
Travid gave Frank a look. But hell...it had all been true and Cori deserved to know too. [b "He's an ass. But he did become one of my best friends here. Had my back more times than I cars to even admit. And yeah I do have an idea. We had planned in the semi, darlin'."] He whispered as the two of them headed back and soon had their mommas asking where had they been.
Travis held up his hands and nodded. [b "It was Frank. He wanted to say good-bye."] Trav explained. And soon their mothers seemed mostly appeased.
[b "I can drive for lunch since I know the roads best."] Travis volunteered.
Cori smiled soflty. [b "Travis is the only thing that I've ever wanted... I was stupid back in high school, but I'm damn lucky that he wanted to give this another go."] she explained, keeping it as short as she possibly could.
After they said their goodbyes, she looked up at Travis. [b "He seemed really nice."] she said. [b "Do you know where he's wanting to practice? Maybe y'all could semi keep in touch."] she said.
She looked up when she heard their Momma's and she couldn't help but laugh. [b "We ran into one of Travis' roommates, and just talked for a little bit. I guess we lost track of time."] she simply said. [b "We're sorry."]
[b "Remember I can always find you in a crowd."] Travis said with a laugh. And she did know it too. But then his smile brightened when she had said she would never let him go again. Truth was, he would be damned to let her go this time. He had learned what life has been without her and didn't want to live it like that anymore or again.
"What do you mean lucky with this one? Most of what he did was study he was so boring, beautiful." Frank said. He was clearly giving Travis shit though. They really had become great friends over the last few years. "Nice meeting you too. Hope we'll all meet again someday."
Travis only shook his head. [b "Tell Tessa I said hey and to make sure you behave."] The man said, giving the other some grief too. Tessa was Frank's girlfriend. And his hand was in Cori's until they had to let go and she brushed her hand against his. [b "They are probably counting down. They always do.. "] He said with a smirk. [b "I know darkin'. I feel the same way."]
And soon, their mommas were coming up to then, asking what had taken them so long.
[b “It’s okay! Don’t worry about it babe. I just wasn’t expecting to find you so quickly is all.] she explained. Her heart felt like it was long to burst when he said forever and always. [b “I’m glad you agree. Cause I’m not letting you go this time.”] she said softly.
She couldn’t help but chuckle when Frank said someone beautiful being with him. [b “Well I think I lucked out with this one.”] she simply said [b “It’s really nice to meet you too!”] She couldn’t help but smirk when Travis warned her on how Frank was a talker.
[b “If I know them, they’re probably counting down from five minutes before they come looking for us.”] she reached down and brushed her hand against Travis’. [b “I’m so glad our families are here, but I’m excited for it to just be us again.”]
Oh he knew that he had scared her and she was about to start running her mouth. But when she relaxed, he smiled and chuckled more, shaking his head. [b "Sorry for scaring you. But it was the best way to get your attention without calling out."] He muttered and soon had his arms around her as she pulled him close and into a hug. [b "From here on out. Always and forever, baby."] He whispered and smiled brighter when she said how proud of him she was.
"Well honey with someone so beautiful being with him it's bound to be noticed. And it's a pleasure to meet you, Cori. I was Trav's roommate until recently. My name's Frank Cross." He said as he took the out stretched hand and shook it with a smile.
[b "Cafeful baby.. Frank is a sweet talker."] Travis said as he kissed her head. And he nodded to her about their mothers. [b "If we don't start back they will come and find us."] He whispered and smiled to Frank and congratulated him as well before they headed back.
Cori jumped when she felt someone touch her shoulder, she was gearing up to start running her mouth, but she physically relaxed when she heard Travis’ voice. [b “Hi!”] she squealed. She grinned as she pulled him closer to her, pulling him into a hug. [b “Now for forever, right?”] she asked [b “Honey, I am so proud of you!”]
She turned around when she heard another voice, speaking to Travis. She couldn’t help but laugh when the man asked why they matched, and who she was. [b “Okay. I didn’t think that everyone would be this observant!”] she said. [b “But, I’m Cori Lane, Travis’ girlfriend.”] she said, extending her hand out. [b “Really nice to meet you...”] She didn’t know his name.
She looked back at Travis for a moment. [b “Mommas drilled me again. And before I forgot, we’re to meet them where we took pictures in a little bit.”]
Travis had been near the first called with his last name being under the "C's" . And he was admittedly SO happy this was all said and dine. It meant the beginning of the rest of his life and being with Cori. But they also had to tell their families as she said. He was so tired of having to keep up the front. But it was only a few more hours.
After the ceremony, Trav's hand touched the young woman's shoulder in the crowd. He had seen her right away and didn't want her lost. [b "So finally graduated. And finally get to be with you."] He said with a chuckle.
"Hey Trav. Oh who is this and why do the two of you match?" Came the voice of his roommmate, Frank. He had wanted to congratulate his friend. But also had seen Cori and Travis so wanted to meet the young woman and see who she was.
[b "Wanna tell him, darlin'?"] He asked Cori. He would leave it up to her.
Cori glanced over at her momma and shook her head. [b “No Ma’am. I just know how you and Travis’s momma have been pushing up together, and I just wanted to make sure you knew that we are simply friends.”] she explained.
She screamed and clapped when Travis walked across the stage. She was taking pictures, and she had told Travis’ cousin, John, who was also the ily one that knew about their relationship, to record it. Her heart was bursting. She was so proud of him!
She was so tired of having to act different around Travis, while they were in front of their families. They just had a few more hours and then it would just be them again. They just had to make it through dinner. [b “I’m gonna go find Travis... No sense in y’all getting lost in that crowd! Let’s meet where we took pictures earlier!”] she said, once the ceremony was over, she ducked into the crowd, searching for Travis.
