“Hi!How are you?”she croaked.The once calming white walls were starting to make her claustrophobic.
“Hey babe!I’m good.In the middle of a meeting actually.Anything important?”
“Ermm..just wanted to hear your voice.This distance is killing me.”She chuckled at the pun.
Half-way across the world,he nodded politely as his boss glowered at him.
“Honey,I really gotta go.Do you have something important to tell me?”

*No!Not like this*
“Let’s go”she finally spoke.
