I was about to leave my desk for some coffee when his text popped up.
“Hey, up for a grocery shopping?” I checked the clock on my computer. 5.45 PM. He was done early.
“Sure. See you in five?” coffee can wait, I murmured.
Our buildings were only twenty feet away, but his workload at the time-of-the-month like this made it harder for us to set a meeting or two (I wouldn’t say a date up to this point). Good thing he got his priorities sorted out. *cough*
I packed my bag and rushed to my office building gate, our meeting point. I caught his smile two minutes later.
