He sat in the car after driving 2 hours back at a Starbucks off the side of the highway.

Thoughts settled. He dialled up her phone.

The voice on the other end seemed despondent and confused.

"Why are you calling me?"

"I just got back, and wanted to talk to you."

There was silence, and then more silence and then the sobbing started.

"I promised I would call you when I got back."


"I didn't even know who this number was."

"I deleted you off my contacts list"
