I just called to say…

”Darling?”
”I miss you.”
”I miss you, too.”
”How’s… where are you, again?”
”Leeds. It’s okay, I had lunch with an old friend yesterday, Jess, she moved up here a few years ago.”
”Oh.”
”Yeah. How are you?”
”Good. I’m good. I’m making, you know, slow progress.”
”Good. I’m glad.”
”Mm, yes.”
”Is someone there?”
”Where?”
”There. With you?”
”Just Chloe.”
”Oh.”
”Yeah, she came by.”
”That’s nice.”
”It is, I’m better off when I’m interrupted at least once a day.”
”Of course.”
”Yeah. So, did you see Laura?”
”I did, we met in Cardiff a few days ago. Wish I could have seen her on stage, but we were on simultaneously.”
”Did you go swimming?”
”We did, you should have been there.”
”Yeah.”
”I know you like the ocean.”
”I love the ocean.”
”I know.”
”If I would have been there with you, then two of my favourite things would finally have been in the same place.”
”Yeah?”
”You and the ocean.”
”It was a bit cold, though.”
”Did you go in?”
”I did. Laura didn’t.”
”Now you’re lying.”
”I am. Yes. It was the other way around.”
”Did she wear that amazing vintage swim suit?”
”Yes! She looked like she’d just stepped out of the fifties.”
”I would have loved to see you, both of you.”
”I know.”
”Yeah.”
”So… how’s rehearsals going?”
”Slow. I don’t know, is it supposed to feel like this?”
”How?”
”Like there’s an elephant sitting on your chest.”
”Is that how you feel?”
”In the rehearsal space, yes. It is.”
”All of the time?”
”Most of the time.”
”Can’t you ask it to move?”
”I’ve tried.”
”It might get better?”
”It might.”
”Are you quitting?”
”No.”
”You sure?”
”Yes. I am not quitting.”
”It’s okay if you do.”
”I’m not quitting.”
”Okay.”
”Not quitting.”
”Nope, you’re not quitting.”
”I am befriending the elephant.”
”I love you?”
”Is that a question mark?”
”No, definitely no question mark.”
”Good.”
”I love you.”
”I love you, too.”
