Launch day tomorrow…. are you excited? I am 🙂
Today’s daily snippet is where Josh first meets Suki, in a busy cafe. She spills her hot drink over his hand:
“It’s fine, really.” A tea towel filled with ice cubes appeared from behind the counter, Suki was juggling this with the napkins and her own drink, when her phone rang again. While I politely refused the ice—the froth hadn’t been enough to scald me—she muttered into her phone. “Hiya. Yes, I’m on my way. I’ll be there in five minutes. I just, ah…got held up. Got to go, see you soon.”
I don’t want to go home.
“That bad, huh?”
Too late, I realised she hadn’t actually said it out loud. I’d picked up on her thought as clearly as if she’d spoken the words. Trying to cover for my mistake, I explained, “I thought you said something, maybe I misheard.”
Worry flickered in her eyes. “Are you sure you don’t need that ice?”
