Swift Scribbles: Romance She Wrote V

 

So my plot worked initially; I think.

 

 

“It’s too early to gloat,” she says from over my shoulder. “Read some more.”

 

 

My throat’s suddenly dry for no good reason. “Can I please have another drink?”

 

 

She smiles and walks away. I continue reading.

 

 

 

I have reached for the phone four times in the past thirty minutes. For some reason, I am hesitating.

Maybe because this is inconsistent with what I know of this guy. Someone who has never made so much as a move to touch the back of my hand is suddenly sending me lingerie.

That isn’t right.

I’ll leave calling Mina for a bit and maybe I’ll be able to make more sense of this.

Left the office early. There wasn’t much to do and I am tired. Something’s been on the edge of my mind since I left the house – something I forgot to do. It is not till I am settling down to watch Tinsel that it hits me.

I left the parcel in the trash.

Quickly I call the office boy and ask him to leave my office untouched. Fortunately, he isn’t there yet.

I’ll think about what to do tom…

 

 

 

Her writing faded off into a muddled scribble.

 

 

“I fell asleep writing that,” she says, handing me a cold glass of something La Casera-ish in color. “What’s this?” I ask, raising the glass to my lips.

 

 

“It’s not poison, if that’s really what you’re asking. And I’m wondering – aren’t you hungry yet?”

 

 

I nod. I actually am.

 

 

She stands and takes my hand, gently pulling me after her. I let the journal fall on the chair and, still holding my sweaty glass allow her lead me.

 

 

The journal can wait.

    OhK! This tale’s still unravelling! I daresay, but for a saucy, pretty sassy ‘lil minx, she was greatly shaken and ruffled by the lingerie thingy! That doesn’t quite add up! All I see now are two people, in a game of wits! The master of the game, who stands to outwit the other remains to be seen. I wait in earnest! Next please, if you will, my good Sir! Lolz.
