“Haha, no, I’m just chillin! It’s raining so I’m on the couch having some tea. How are you?”
“That’s great! I’m awesome, really enjoying myself here!”
“Oh don’t be silly, of course I’m coming back tomorrow”
“Sure, why don’t you. At your place?”
“My place? Ha. Okay, why not, I guess. But you’ll have to help me clean up”
“Yeah, okay. Hey, listen, Dave, I’ve got to go”
“Yes, no, still going to stay indoors”
“Because it wouldn’t be very nice to make Thomas just listen to me talking on the phone now would it?”
“I know, but really, we can talk tomorrow. I have a long train ride”
“Oh you’re right, I did book the quiet train. Well we could still text”
“I’ll be back in Geneva very very soon, Davey, what is wrong with you?”
“Yes, I miss you too, and everyone else. I’ll see you soon”
“Okay. Bye, Davey!”

“Sorry, that was Dave, my friend from Geneva”
“He likes you, doesn’t he?”
“Well of course he does, he’s my best friend. OH, you mean… no, I don’t think so”
“I do. But he’s not here, and you obviously think he’s just a friend… and my goodness Aimee don’t do that, you look irresistible!”
“I think you’re getting really good at kissing, how good are you at other stuff?”
“If you stay, you might be able to find out”
“Really. Why not now?”
“Oh. Wow!”
“Shh… kiss me”
“All over.”
