The phone rang. It rang again.
Oh, hi, how are you?
I’m doing well, just cleaning my house. I’m glad you called. It’s been a while.
No, no, I needed a distraction. Haha.
Yeah, same job, same place, same old stuff. What’s going on with you?
Uh-huh. Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.
Yeah, I understand. Not a problem…
I know, I totally understand. What caused that?
What?! Oh my…
Like, how hard?
You’ve got to be kidding me.
No, me? I’ve never been through anything like that.
Well, it’s good though. You…
Right, right. Who can deal with that?
And Carlos? How’s he?
Well of course, but did you explain what happened?
He saw it?
Did he say anything to you when it was….?
Well, I’m so sorry to hear that but I’m so happy that it’s over.
Now what are you doing?
Right, right, you’re mom’s in Columbus.
What about your sister?
Right, because then you don’t want to have to explain the whole thing. She’ll end up lecturing you.
Ben will kill him.
Well, no. Gabriel is gone.
Well… I mean, you don’t have anywhere else, right?
Of course you can.
Both of you.
Today? Oh yeah. I don’t want you to worry about him.
What? You’re outside?
Wow, yes I see you.
Your hair’s longer than I remember.
I guess so… Two years.
Well, come up, don’t just stay down there.
All right. 3F
Ok, ok. You’re welcome.
