I walked in to find a note on my desk.
Hello love. Call me please.
I dropped to my seat and flipped open my note book. I grabbed the hand set and fumbled as my finger stabbed away at the buttons. The numbers didn’t come as easily as they used to.
I held my breath as the digital tone sounded in my ear.
“Where’ve you been?”
“Away. Not far. I took a bit of a break. It lasted a lot longer than I hoped.”
“Well, you’re back now. That’s what’s important.”
I smiled, “Yes it is.”
