a cure for the common block

Detour

Jeremy tucked the envelope into his backpack as he got out of the cab and walked through the campus, taking time to appreciate the beautiful day; not just the sun and sculptures, but the students protesting the use of non-vegetarian cooking oil for the french fries, and flyers for the Volcano Worshipers Club. He savored the moment and continued to the dorms, making his way to B Hall; he knocked on her door and when she answered, he told her everything. For a while they sat together in silence, but it wasn’t uncomfortable or sad, in fact it was another moment for him to savor.
