Catra comes home to Scorpia after a long time apart
Catra leans back in the bed at the hotel she is at. At least these business trips don’t make you pay from a room. It isn’t a five star place but it’s not a one star place either. More like a three star which isn’t so bad. Tomorrow is her last day here before she has to go on a plane and head back home. Finally. It has been so long since she was back home. Not to mention, Scorpia will be there, waiting to crush her in a hug.
Speaking of her girlfriend, Catra grabs her laptop from the nightstand, opens and turns it on, and calls Scorpia on it. There is a chance that she won’t pick up, it is late after all, but it is worth a shot. After a few rings, Scorpia appears on screen. She looks tired but happy.
“Hiya, Wildcat. How are you?” Scorpia asks.
“Tired, which you look like as well. Tomorrow is going to be a long day and I plan on sleeping on the plane.”
“Yeah I am sleepy. Had a long day at work. But I can’t wait to see you. Sorry that I cannot pick you up at the airport but I will be waiting for at the house.”
Catra shrugs. “Stuff happens. Long as I don’t have to do jack when I get back. I need a break after all this running around.”
“Don’t you worry. Get some rest. I’ll see you soon.” Scorpia blows her a kiss. Catra catches it and blows one back. Scorpia smiles and catches hers as well before turning off her screen share.
Catra shuts of her laptop and turns on the TV. She does not stay up late and after about an hour or so, she turns it off and goes to bed. The next day she packs up her things, checks out of her hotel, and attends to her last pieces of work business. By the time it is done, it is late in the afternoon. By the time she gets to the airport and boards the plane, night has fallen. She will not be back to the airport closest to her home until early morning. Catra puts some headphones on and shuts her eyes.
Time quickly passes as she sleeps and she wakes when the plane starts to land back down. Now the fun part of getting everything and leaving the airport. Home will come soon. It will be worth it. She takes a cab and it takes her back to her little house she shares with Scorpia.
