It has only been edited by me twice, so please forgive any remaining mistakes. The rest will be coming soon!
She grunted in frustration when she realized she had Sunday night off work. She told him she would see him tomorrow night, but she wouldn’t. She would have to wait two nights to see him again. Did he realize her mistake, or did he expect her to come in on her night off?
The first thing she did when she got inside, was call The Tilted Kilt. She was about to hang up, but on the sixth ring, Eric picked up.
“Hi, it’s me. Sookie.” She smiled at how flustered she was.
“Hello Sookie. What time shall I pick you up?”
“Yeah, that’s why I was calling. I’m off tomorrow night, right?” Sookie frowned.
“You are indeed off the schedule.” Eric shuffled papers. “I’ve got your address right here. What time would you like me to pick you up.”
“Pick me up for what?” Sookie’s cheeks burned.
“Our date.” His voice was matter-of-fact, as if they had discussed this already.
“Um. Our date, right.” Had she blocked part of their conversation from her mind?
Eric sighed. “I assumed that’s what you meant when you said you would see me tomorrow night. If I am out of line…”
Sookie spoke quickly. “No, not at all. Eight? Is eight o’clock okay?”
“Perfect. Until then.” His voice kissed her ear and made her knees weak.
It took her two hours to fall asleep. It was late in the afternoon before she finally dragged herself out of bed.
