We hugged and I kissed her cheek.
"I hate long goodbyes. So I'll just say farewell. I'll see ya soon," I said softly.
A tear was rolling down her cheek. I wiped it away, turned and left.
I got in the car and backed out onto Main Street. It had been quite a journey since I got here. I dscovered a lot of things I didn't want to know, but it inspired my script so I judged it was worthwhile. I was still mulling over the ending as I hit the road for Hollywood. It was just after 10 pm.
