Velvet Verbosity: Staff

Jessica missed her ex-boyfriend. She missed the way he made her laugh and she missed the sex. She knew he missed her too and so after a shot of tequila Jessica text him.

“I miss you”
“I miss you too.”
“Can I come over?”
“I have company. Can you wait till after midnight?”
“Who is she?!”
“My mom. She’s helping me paint”
That’s nice”

“So you want to come over at midnight?”
“No, I’ll be drunk by then”
“Can I come there?”
“I said I will be drunk”
“That’s okay. Me and my staff like it when you’re drunk.”
