His phone buzzed and he was pleasantly surprised to see her picture.
“You used to call me your ‘dear one’ I wonder what you call me now. I suspect it might be something closer to the former than you might like me to be aware of.
Her picture didn’t respond so he continued.
‘Yeah, I know it is weird to talk to your picture but thus far I have had no reason to push because I always figured you’d wake up one day and decide it was time to see me.
And by decide I mean you’ll tell me it is my fault it has taken so long, You’re a pain-in-my-ass but I must like you because you are still around.
Maybe you say the same about me.
