Snap out of it, Claire thought, did you really think you were the only one he flirted with? Men like Alec go through women like gloves – that’s probably some random one-night stand he brought along – there are bound to be plenty more in the future and it serves you right to finally clear your head of these pointless delusions.
As if on cue, her phone rang and Claire reached for the receiver for her salvation – David’s number was on the caller id.
“Hey,” the sound of David’s voice brought Claire back to reality, spawning ripples of guilt for her earlier thoughts. “How is your night going?”
“Could be better.”
“Yeah, if you were next to me right now,” Claire purred, thinking that she was a complete idiot to entertain thoughts about another man when she was lucky enough to be with David.
“I can’t argue with you there.”
“So do you want to do anything about it?”
“I’d love to babe, but I’ve got too much stuff at the office – I probably won’t get out of here until late tonight.”
In spite of herself Claire’s spirits plummeted – she wished that just for once David Lawson would forget about what was expected of him and just be a man, her man. Tonight especially she yearned for reassurance of their love – not that she had any reasons to doubt its vitality, but she wanted to bask in its warmth.
“Hey, babe, are you OK? You’re awfully quiet there. Listen, I have to run, but the reason I called was to talk to you about our anniversary. You remember that I asked you to keep the weekend open?”
“Yes.” Claire bit her lip, fighting off another fit of guilt – here was David, planning a secret weekend getaway for their anniversary while she was doubting his ability to be spontaneous – clearly, that made her the most unappreciative girlfriend on earth.
