“i just called…” – life steaks (55 fiction by any other name)

04Aug06

underdone

he thinks of calling her all day but something keeps popping up. when he does get her on the phone she’s upset and only wants to vent. he tries his best but he can’t get her to relax.

my life’s a mess, she says.

it ends an hour later with him as depressed as her.

medium rare

he’s telling his team to wrap things up quickly, we’ll all go for a treat tonight. make the reservations. it’s not everyday we get appreciated by the partner.

the team needs an hour so he thinks he’ll call her.

the a r rahman ringtone starts and the caller id brings a smile to his face.

burnt

he watches the clock tick away at the bottom right hand corner of the screen, suddenly realizing what it must feel to be a junkie in need of a fix. he can’t wait till its time to call her again.

he picks up his cell and dials her number.

“you do not have sufficient credit…”
