I return to my story I started a little while ago. Today’s snippet is back in Jesse’s POV.
“I appreciate your offer,” he finally replied. “I’m not sure what to expect, though. I suppose if it’s just a strained wrist, it’ll be as easy as getting her settled back in her house.”
“Okay. I’d better let you go. Again, sorry—”
“Please, don’t apologise. It’s nice to hear your voice…” He stopped. Where the hell did that come from? “I mean…”
“You’re worried and needed a distraction. I understand. May I put Zoe on for a second or two again? She’d like to tell you something.”
Yet, before he was able to reply, he heard Lexie telling her daughter to keep it short because he was driving to see his sister and, again, the rest was muffled voices.
“I’m sorry about you sister, Ranger Jesse.” Zoe’s voice still quiet but had a little more confidence in it. “I found a name for the joey and was hoping you’d like it.”
“I’m sure I will.”
“Mum helped me finding it. Do you like Wulaba? It’s aboriginal for Kangaroo.”
Jesse’s knowledge in the aboriginal language was limited, but he remembered that kangaroo was a different word. But who was he to tell her that she might not have been a hundred percent. “I think it’s great. You’d better tell Julie tomorrow. Will you be there after school?”
“Good. Thank you so much for finding a name. That’s a great help.”
“Okay. Mum says I need to let you go. Will I see you the day after tomorrow?”
He wished he had the answer to the question. “I hope so. If not, you will see me one night for dinner, though. Will you cook for me?”
Her soft giggle reminded him of his sister. “I can’t cook.”
“I can bring pizza. Do you like pizza?”
“I love pizza.”
“Deal. I’ll give you a call when I get back.”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
