Robin snapped her eyes to him, completely and utterly shocked. The sudden overwhelming emotions crashed into her, and the volume of what was happening began to sink in. She had to look away, bringing her hand up to press into the corners of her eyes at the duct, sniffing as she tried to prevent welling up. It hit her hard, and the realisation of what Caleb meant to her was just something else. Taking a long breath, she composed herself, but it was evident in her face that she was on the verge of shedding some tears.
She took Calebs hand suddenly, squeezing as she looked over to him, swallowing thickly.
"Ditto." She gave him a tight smile. "Don't get choked up, mate. This is just a hitch in the road, you'll see. Rules might change, or I could get promoted, or one of us could get transferred...or maybe I find a job elsewhere. Maybe somewhere closer. Don't...don't..."
She looked away again, biting her lip.
"It'll be all reyt. Just not our time, is all." And with that, she began to let go of his hand.
