And without even thinking twice about it, she stood on her toes and placed a kiss on his cheek. “Give me a call if you need to talk.”
Too scared he might have seen her blush, she didn’t linger but opened the door and walked to her car. What had made her kiss him? What would he think of her?
Emily started the engine and drove off to her next patient. Busy with looking after the other patients in the afternoon, her mind was on the job while sorting medication, checking vital signs, or even giving some of them a wash.
Once finally home later that day, she grabbed one of her mum’s lasagne out of the freezer and heated it up in the microwave.
“The love of my childhood is back in town. Could be his twin, too, for all I know,” she mumbled to Boomer, the orange and white cat rubbing against her leg. She gave the cat a quick rub on the belly and was rewarded with a content purr.
A few minutes later, she sat in front of the television with her meal when the phone rang.

His twin. LOL She is so smitten she won’t even admit it to herself. 😉
Oh, she’s smitten … and she knows it, too 🙂
Sure hope she learns more and can face what could happen
So who’s on the phone. Clearly it’s important or you wouldn’t have bothered to dramatize it.
