Alex was particularly quiet today, which only confirmed my fears that we would never have a conversation of any depth and meaning. It worried me. Something was wrong. Our relationship had been based on lust at the start, and now I realised there was no real substance. What was worse is that I missed Alice.
"What do you want?"
"Alice... I, I just wanted to apologise. For what I did."
"Yeah well you can save it."
"What? Is she not as good as me?"
"That's not what I..."
"Well I don't care. It's over. Get on with your life."
She hung up and I sighed.
Well, at least I'd tried to make it up to her.
I decided to go for lunch.
Alex do you want to join me for lunch?
I waited for two minutes before she replied.
Can't sorry. I'll see you later?
I shrugged it off. Time to go to lunch. This was ridiculous.
