Emily-A promise of whale watchingMature

Emily

“That… that woman!” I yelled. “I can't believe that she made a scene like that in our neighborhood. She cheated first! And she dare call you names! You know that I hate when people call others bad names. It pisses me off!”

“So weekend was bad?” Jess asked. Jess looks scared of me. 

“Don’t change the subject on me, Jess. Ah, I knew it that it was a bad idea for you to go alone with him. And just because a man talks about getting divorce, do you think he will?” I challenged her.

“He will,” Jess said confidently. “He's working on it with David. What if she presses charges Em?”

I look at her. “I'm sorry, who will the judge believe? A law student or a messed up housewife?”

Jess smiles. “A law student.”

I smile back, calming down now. Damn, my weekend was so good before this happened. “David took me to the zoo. I have tons of photos to show you.”

“He listened to me!” Jess exclaimed. “Show me now. I want to see.”

I roll my eyes at her, then my phone rings. I pick up, it's Ikuto.

Before I can say anything, he says, “Tell me you that love me and you can't stand to be away from me.”

I laugh.” I love you and I can't stay away from you.”

Jess gives me a look. I mouth ‘Ikuto’ and she waits intently.

“I found Jess’s father. He's four hours away near San Diego. I'll text you his address. Got to warn you though, he's married, though no kids. He owns a computer chip company,” Ikuto said. 

“Hold on, I'm going to put you on speaker phone, so repeat word for word for Jess,” I said. 

“Okay, one more time, I found Jess’s father. He's four hours away near San Diego. I'll text you his address. Got to warn you though, he's married, though no kids. He owns a computer chip company,” Ikuto repeated. 

Jess jumps in joy and yells, “I love you, Ikuto!”

I laugh at her reaction. “Thanks, Ikuto. Got to go celebrate.”

We hang up and I look at Jess.

“Let me guess, we're packing our stuff right now, you're calling your boss to get three days off work, and we leave in an hour.”

Jess smiles at me.” I love how you know me so well.”

And with that we get ready to leave.

The End
