Assignment #52
Write the phone call you wish you could have.

Leslie Doyle
Lexington, Kentucky USA



Me: Hey, what's up?
Red: Not much just wanted to see if you wanted to go out tonight.
Me: Where to?
Red: A friend of mine is having a small party.
Me: Yeah sure, sounds good.
Red: See you are 10ish?
Me: Sure thing (Hesitancy in my voice)...but I think I should tell you something before it's too late...and before I lose my guts.
Red: What is it?
Me: But before I tell you I want you to know that I don't expect anything from you, and it's just for me to get these words off my chest.
Red: Okay...go ahead.
Me: Just don't let this change anything between us.
Red: It won't.
Me: All right...I've fallen in love with you Red. I've tried to tell myself not to, and I've even distanced myself from you at times. Yet I can't get past the feelings I have for you. They just surface on their own. I knew it when I saw you. As we keep getting closer and closer, it just keeps getting harder and harder to keep my feelings from you.
Red: Leslie?
Me: Yeah?
Red: I feel the same way about you.
Me: You do?
Red: Yes.
Me: Wow...to think I was so worried about telling you.
Red: I've been trying to get the courage to tell you the same thing.
Me: So where do we go from here?
Red: We keep getting closer?
Me: Sounds awesome to me!
Red: I'll see you tonight then, and we can talk about this more?
Me: Absolutely, see you tonight
