He’ll call first thing in the morning. He has to, right? That kiss was too intense for the “three day rule.” A few days passed and she longed for his voice. Was it something she said? Was the conversation boring? Maybe she had something lodged in her teeth? After a week, it was clear. There had to be something wrong with her. Checking her cell phone every five minutes. What are the chances that he tried and she missed the call? Maybe she should check voice mail. Again. It had taken an entire lifetime to find a man with a bar code emblazoned on his chest. And she wasn’t about to lose him now. No man just walks away from her. Now he’ll learn.
