In The Hollow Of His Hand
Is Aunt K Dating Again?
I decided to call Aunt K on Skype since it had been a while we spoke.
“Aunt K!!!” I called.
“Sweetie” She answered.
I observed that she was in a noisy environment.
“Where are you at?” I asked.
“I am out. I will call you back in five minutes. Is that okay?” She responded.
“Alright. I will be waiting. Be safe.” I said and hung up.
About ten minutes, she called back.
“So, where were you at?” I asked immediately I accepted the call.
“I was just hanging out with a friend.” She answered after laughing for a while.
“Hmmm… A friend??? Is he single or married?” I asked.
I wasn’t ready to beat around the bush.
“Chill! Jeez! I didn’t tell you that the friend is a ‘he’.” She answered proving all defensive.
“Whichever way; is he single or married?” I asked.
“Whatever. He’s single.” She answered.
“That’s nice. For how long have you known him?” I began my interrogation.
“I didn’t know you called simply to interview me.” She answered.
“That’s not an answer…” I said.
“Fine. For about two months.” She answered.
“Hmmm… Does Josh…” I began.
“Uhm… can we talk much later, I am at work?” She interrupted.
“Okay… we can. Bye.” I replied and hung up.
I didn’t get to tell her why I called; I can always tell her another day…
