My fingers began to itch and before I knew it I dialled the magic number wondering what I would do were my friend not to answer. Thankfully, I did not not have to wait long for a response.
"Hello," I said.
"Hi!" I answered. "What's up?"
"Just wondering how you were?" I lied because I really just wanted to get it over with and tell my bit.
"No, tell me how you are?" I asked. "If, of course, you know."
"Well, that's just it," I told myself, relieved to be so understood. "I don't know. I feel a void. Like there's a part of me missing. Could that part of me be you?"
"Nah, you don't really need me because you are me. But it does sound like you need to change something," suggested I.
Silence. That's about as far as the conversation got. We didn't even say goodbye. It wasn't necessary.
