In The Hollow Of His Hand
“How is work going?” I asked.
“It is going well. It is break time and I decided to see your pretty face.” He answered.
“Awwwnnn… how sweet of you.” I replied.
“I know right? Are you busy?” He asked.
“Kinda. I am reading for my final paper which is scheduled for tomorrow.” I answered.
“Okay. Make me proud.” He said.
“Of course I will.” I replied.
“When will the semester be over?” he asked.
“In five days’ time.” I replied.
“Okay, so can I pay you a visit during the holidays?” he asked.
“Awwwnnn! Of course.” I said without hesitation.
“That’s great, can I call you back in five?” He asked.
“Sure. Take your time.” I answered.
Immediately he hung up, I imagined us having dinner at home – Pop, Bee, Chelsea, Chad, Jake and I. I smiled at the thought of it. However, my smile was short-lived as I imagined Pop drilling Jake. I waved it aside almost immediately – Jake would be fine.
Five minutes later, he called back.
Punctuality – check.
“Hope I didn’t keep you waiting for too long.” He said.
“Nope, you didn’t.” I replied.
“Thank God. What are you up to?” He asked.
“Wanna continue reading.” I answered.
“Okay… talk to you later then.” He said.
“Aite. Take care of yourself.” I replied.
“I will; you too.” He responded and hung up.
