Chapter Thirteen: Crickets
“Hey girlie, long time no word? What’s up?”
Kagome breathed a sigh of relief after reading the text. “What do you have planned for tonight? I really need to go out,” she replied in a hopefully casual way.
As she waited for a return text, her computer screen flashed with another message from REDtails43. “Are you still there?” he asked.
“Oh no,” she thought. She could have smacked her herself for forgetting she was still in a live chat. She quickly typed a reply, “Yep, still here.”
“So… do you have any plans?”
Still no text.
She needed to stall.
