There was a pause.

Okay, that was normal. Nevaeh had, admittedly, just dumped a lot on him. A lot more than he had probably bargained for, if she were to guess.

      • Well, this is awkward - Nathan Xavier, Wed Apr 11 14:58
        Oh good, she’s still here, was Nathan’s first relieved thought, but that was swiftly followed by the more perverse thought, Oh no, she’s still here! Because while he had to make this right, he still... more
