Only when I dialed, it dawned on me I had no idea what her schedule was. It was early evening in London, but if she started a new production, it was most likely she wasn’t in yet. And I didn’t know if I could gather enough courage to call later. But dialing was instinctive, and I found myself finishing the process before I could decide whether or not I should just hang up.
But she was home. After three rings, there was a rustling sound, like a phone being picked up. I found myself holding my breath. I didn’t realize how much I missed her voice until this one anxious moment.
The air left my lungs in one sharp whoosh at this unfamiliar yet clearly manly voice. I felt my jaw clench as I grabbed the phone tighter, refusing to believe it was happening. My first explanation was instinctive – it was a wrong number, a mistake. I'd done it before.
