“I’m sorry,” Will said. He felt like a jerk. “This just isn’t going to work out.”
“What?” The woman sitting opposite him looked nothing like Amanda. Nor Florence. She was cute and sweet and perfectly nice. Also, fucking cello player. Was there a sexier instrument?
Fucking work it, Will. Cello. Between those thighs. Come on. Penis. Twitch!
“I’m so sorry. This just isn’t going to work out.”
He was a jerk.
Also, fucking déjà vu.
Was she going to say, “I thought this was going quite well?”
“I thought this was going quite well,” she said. “I thought…”
“You’re lovely,” he said. “I’m just…”
Thinking about another woman’s freckles and nipples.
Don’t fucking say that. Say something else.
“I’m so sorry,” he said.
Fucking lie, Will. She’s about to cry.
“I’m just realizing… and I’m so sorry, I’m realizing it right now, sitting across the table from you—but I’m just realizing I’m too freshly divorced. You know? I’m not ready for this.”
She reached for his hands.
“It’s all right,” she said. “I’m not looking for anything serious.”
Except she was. He saw the lie and longing in her face—is that what Florence had seen in his?
“I’m so sorry,” he said. And he took her hands to his lips. Kissed the knuckles of each of her ten fingers. Rested his forehead on her wrist.
Went home alone.
Thought about Florence.
