Wednesday Whisper ~ Need You Now

Five consultations and her rounds finished, Eva sat at her desk and groaned, leaning back.

“You okay, Doc?”

“Know what the worst thing about a vacation is, Michela? Coming back to work. I need a vacation from my vacation, just to recover.”

The nurse laughed.

Eva slanted her gaze to her. “I’m telling you the truth. I am still exhausted.”

“I’m sure you are. It was all that sex you were having.”

Her body flushed at the mention of sex. Cripes, she had to get a grip. “Something like that,” she hedged.

Michela snorted. “Oh, please. You came back looking all relaxed and sated. You can play it off if you want, but we all know the truth. You had your clock cleaned. Your world rocked. Tires rotated.”

She sat forward, hands out. “Please, stop. I get it. You think I had wild, crazy, amazing sex.”

Her friend crossed her arms and arched a finely plucked black eyebrow. “Tell me I’m wrong.”

She couldn’t, not even a little bit.

Michela knew it and laughed harder this time around. “May want to work on that before the others catch up to you. They’re going to want all the details.”

“And you don’t?”

“I plan on having them tonight at dinner. We’re still on, right?”

“Yes, I’m not saying no to one of your meals.”

“You just love me for my cooking skills.”

“At least I’m honest about it.” Eva shrugged with as much innocence as she could muster. To tell the truth, it wasn’t all that much.

“You’ve got it bad for him. I can’t wait to hear all about it. But not now. We have a party to get to.”

This time her smile was wide and full of happiness. Eva pushed to her feet. “Yes, we do.”
