On the other hand, a little flirt wouldn’t hurt and hopefully distract her from her misery, even if just for a little while.
The buzzing of her phone pulled her out of her reverie. She checked the ID and with a hesitant smile answered the call.
“Harrison. How are you?”
“I’m sorry for calling so late. It’s been … never mind. Just wanted to see that you’re all right.” He paused for a moment and asked quietly, “Are you?”
A mix of emotions overwhelmed her. The anger and sadness of having lost everything sat deep within her. Excitement and apprehension about breakfast with Jon trickled through her. And now a whisper of warmth cascaded through her hearing Harrison’s concerned voice. She might have lost everything, but she still had people caring for her.
“I’m fine,” she replied. “Thank you for letting me stay at your cabin. I really appreciate it.”
“I heard the other side has been occupied by a tourist. I’m sorry about it.”
“No,” she responded louder than intended. “No, don’t’ apologise. That’s fine. He’s quiet and courteous. No stress at all.”
Shit, had she just said he?
“Okay. Clearly it’s no hassle.”
Had she imagined the amusement in his voice?
