I was leaving tomorrow. And I did not want to.
“Huh,” I sighed as my gaze roamed the lake. Tiny little boats bobbed around on the water; the piers filled to capacity as Labor Day was three days away. Why the hell was I going back to Manhattan? I could stay here for the long weekend. No one would be working at Toras & Mills anyway. Well, I probably would have been if not for Anders now residing in my heart. Shit yes, I would have been in the office for sure while every employee was off having a good old time. Now I had no interest at all in going back. Boom would have to drag me to the airport tomorrow. And that said a lot. I took a small sip of water, wishing it had some scotch in it, as I mulled over my discovery.
Did I hate my old life so much? No, not really. Maybe? No. Maybe? Shit. No, I didn’t hate it. I just didn’t love it. Not like I once had. I’d fallen out of love with my job somehow. And while I certainly didn’t despise what I did I now wanted to do something…else? Maybe? Or did I want to do what I was still doing but in a different city? I sat up, my water bottle dangling from my fingers as my sight lingered on the hundreds of boats floating serenely in their berths. I gave things deep and careful consideration.
Could I be a reputable sports agent in Buffalo? LA and New York were the big cities where most of the top firms were located. And I had put so much work into my career, and into Toras & Mills. Walking away now that we were at the top would be insane. Right?

Wow! Talk about a tough choice. Very realistic scene since many of us do question our career choices. Well done.

Such a dilemma – mirroring many of the ones we all face at one point in time. Great scene!
I love the insight to his thoughts. It really let’s you feel what he is. Great job!
