“Sweetheart, are you home?” Y/N and Chris’ apartment of three years had been half-empty the whole day, her favorite man being at work all day. Every day in Houston had been like this ever since he had been chosen for the NASA Astronaut Program, and though it’d been a huge move from Hartford to Houston, she couldn’t be more proud of him. Today had been another day at the space center for him and she had been working on lessons for her third grade class. 

The door unlocked with a slow creak, and there Chris Beck stood in all his messy glory, chestnut curls unruly and blue eyes showing clear exhaustion. “Yeah, honey, it’s me.” 

Normally, he would drop his brown shoulder bag by the counter in their small kitchen before absolutely dropping his whole body weight on Y/N’s lap as she ran her hands along his scalp and told him about her day, but today was different. Today, he dropped his bag, lost in his head about the pain they were about to feel as a couple. There was no easy way to break the information he had gotten at work to the love of his life, but it had to be done, as much as it hurt him. Guilt and pain pooled around in his gut as he kneeled in front of her, hands on her knees. 

In the five years Y/N had been dating Chris Beck, there was never a time she had seen him so stressed. She had stood right by his side through job applications, space walks, a move halfway across the country, and his several years, and hopefully more, in the astronaut program, fully supporting his childhood dreams. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for this man who had walked into her life and stolen her heart without a second thought. “Are you okay, Chris? You look a little tense, honey.” She placed her hand on his jaw, thumb rubbing small circles along his cheekbone.

He took a deep sigh and peered up at her, and only then did she notice the tears in his eyes. “I’m going to be leaving, Y/N.”
