Her phone beeped. Half immersed in her workload, she glanced up quickly at the screen of her smartphone. A tiny blue light was flashing at the base of it.
Distracted from what she was doing, she continued to gaze at the blue dot.
An incoming message!!
It sent a thrill through her. Who could have sent that text?
What if it was from the person that she was expecting it to be? A smile started tracing itself on her lips. That would be pleasant. She hadn’t heard from them in a while and she had almost started worrying herself wondering why.
Well, there was one easy way to find out – pick up the phone!!
But then – what if it wasn’t from them? That would only disappoint her further. She hated getting excited anticipating only to get irritated to see someone else’s name displayed on the screen.
It’s not like she wanted to ignore others if they texted. It’s just that, she was just expecting that particular text.
She eyed the phone now, her fingertips hovering inches away from the screen, itching to pick it up and check her messages.
But she had work to be completed. She had to act a little professional, shouldn’t she?
She tore her eyes away from the flickering blue dot.
Surely they would understand, surely they would wait..
But what if this one wait became the one that was too long to take?
