Doppelganger

He spent the day between pacing from one end of the room to other and sitting on her bed just staring at the door waiting for her to come home. The anticipation was as gut-wrenching as his excitement was jubilating. The countdown was excruciating.
Eventually, he tried to stop looking at the clock. He tried to forget about the crawling hands. AS the sun set outside the vibrant white rays of late afternoon light that poured in through the slanted spaces of the blinds gradually transformed into a dim orange glow.
