“About this morning,” Kyle said, finally breaking the painful silence, “um… well… that really wasn’t the question I had intended to ask you.”
“It wasn’t?” Janice said, looking up, her eyes catching his, her breath stopping.
“No it wasn’t,” he said, the courage building inside him. “There was something a bit more important than flying monkeys.”
