Mysterious Creatures

That night as Jameson was getting ready for bed, he heard a strange buzzing sound coming from inside his desk drawer. “That can’t be my cell phone, I just turned it off,” he mused aloud as he approached his desk with some trepidation.

“Yep, I’ll be there.”

“Six o’clock at Houdini Bar. Don’t be late.”

“I won’t,” he replied but she’d already hung up. He stayed holding the phone open in his palm for a long time, just staring at it. Why was she berating him for answering her phone if she was the one calling? Girls are such mysterious creatures…
