The Conflict

Still to this day, I’m conflicted by Kate’s decision to meet Nathan. I appreciated why it would be a terrible idea to meet up with him because it looked disastrous for her. She would appear as a defector.

The Waiting

The waiter approached the table and handed her the menu. “Are you waiting for someone?” She nodded with impatient frustration. Nathan was late. She was already doubting her decision. She didn’t need him to give her any other reasons to feel unsure. “He shouldn’t be much longer.”

The Questions and Lies

Oh wow, he’s going right for it, Kate mused. “What did she tell you?”

The Sad Truth

“By the way, I didn’t lose my watch.”
