“Tell me. What does Matt look like? I need to know.”

mjc-Tell Me texting leg shot

“Tell me. What does Matt look like? I need to know.”

she texts me. It’s 11 p.m., maybe later, and I’m in bed. I text back:

—What part are you on?”

“Just finished Day 1.”

—Ask me again when you get to Day 3.”

And I turn off the phone and go to bed. (I don’t see her “Good night, bitch!” message until the next morning.)

I give her a day before I reach out.

—Where are you now?

“Day 21. Reading now. Go away. Don’t interrupt me.”

—Do you still need to know what Matt looks like?

“Fuck, no. I don’t care. Now go away. I’m READING!”


That’s what he looks like.

I smirk, a little full of myself.

Let me tease you more:

Day 1: Maybe

  1. Maybe: “I’m just going to enjoy knowing he’s in my pocket.”
  2. Danger: “I’m looking for the elevated heart rate emoticon.”
  3. (N-entirely-SFW) Words are dangerous: From hopeful to hard in three adjectives
  4. Cyber-adulteress: “I don’t want you to judge me.”
  5. (Totally NSFW) Tumble: “You won’t be on your feet for long.”
