That Call

It was one of the days when you had back to back meetings, and the only time you had the time to go back to your room was at the lunch hour.

It was on that particular day when I saw a missed call from him on my office phone. We had no official business at all except colleagues who worked together under the same building, so when I saw that missed call, I called him back to check out what was up.

"Hellooooooooooooo" he made a long resonating 'oooooooo' as if calling some little kids for their breakfast. Cute, bar none.
"Hello", I smiled, and I know he was smiling as well.
There was a pregnant pause, and I continued,
"Did you call me?"
"Yes"
"Anything?"
"Nothing, just to make sure that you are there"
"Ahh okay..."
"Uh huh"
"Bye"
"Bye", he hung up, and I hung up, pretty much in a slow motion.

I didn't realize for how long I smiled while staring at the inanimate phone. But I was sure it was kinda long enough that the meetings right after that seemed weightless.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh stupid women and their fragile emotions.

WOMAN!
