Come over, he said.
I have a deadline, she said.
Oh come on, he said.
Nope, gotta get this out, I’m responsible, she said.
Hey, I have that champagne you like.
I have chocolate. I have peaches. I have clean sheets. It will be very sexy.
I’ll even put Leonard Cohen on. Or Joni Mitchell.
Uh Uh. I’m sorry, I can’t, it’s hectic, I have to finish this.
Okay, he said. Call me if you change your mind. It would be cool to see you. We could just talk. It’s been a while.
Okay then, she said.
I’m on my way.
