99 Words #2 – Hey Baby, Where You Been? (aka A is for Absence)

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.

“Hey you.”

“Morning.”

“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.”
