Dear Liza, Dear Liza (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
The hospital is releasing me today. I didn’t want you to worry if you came to visit tonight and I wasn’t here. I’m going to take some time off from work, and I probably won’t be in class tomorrow night. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me this past week. We need to talk, I know. Janice can get in touch with me if you need anything while I’m gone.
Liza read the note twice. She turned it over, read it again. What the hell? She was glad that he thought to let her know that he was being released. He was right, she would have worried if he was just gone when she came by tonight. But what about the rest? Thank you for sleeping with me and saving my life. Call my assistant if you need me?! Liza’s hands were shaking. She swallowed again and again as she ambled to the stairs.
