“Can I grab your number?” I ask Olivia, not sure why I am asking because we live on opposite sides of the world. I don’t know, it seems like the right thing to do and I kind of want to stay in touch.
“Um, sure.” She sounds a little uneasy about my request, maybe because it was supposed to be a weekend only fling. She types her number into my phone before giving me a peck on the cheek. “Sorry, I have to go,” she says as she grabs her bags from her room. “Thanks for this weekend, it’s been fun.” Her cheeks turn pink.
I frown, a little taken aback that she is so eager to get away from me.
“Well, I guess I’ll see you at the wedding then?” Why was I excited about see her again?
“Yes, I guess so.” Why is she pushing me away? I grab her face and press my lips against hers, she eventually relents and opens up for me and I kiss her, letting her know that I am going to want more next time I see her. She pulls me against her and it calms me. We pull away. “Until next time,” she says, giving me a weak smile as she walks out the door.
“Damn it.” I thump my fist on the desk. “I thought she was interested.” I look at my phone and the text message flashing back at me: Sorry, I think you have the wrong number.
I can’t believe Olivia gave me the wrong number. Did she not want to see me again? Why the fuck do I care? Why the hell do I want to see her again?
“Everything alright?” Jackson asks, popping his head into my office. I let out a long sigh.
“Can I ask you something?” He nods. “Close the door on your way in.” He does and sits down in the chair opposite my desk. “Has a girl ever given you a fake number before?” Jackson blinks at me a couple of times and bursts out laughing. Yeah, thanks asshole.
