As things finally started to cool off between him and Veronica, he laid next to her, breathing slowly but heavily against her neck.
Which is why he ignored his phone at first. But it was ringing excessively. He sighed, kissed Veronica gently, and said quietly, "Sorry."
He reached over and picked up his phone with a grumble. "Yeah?" His voice exasperated.
He listened to the voice on the other end of the phone for a moment, and then replied, "What!?" Pause. "No... No I have no idea..... I swear I haven't heard from him........ She's right here, actually. You want to talk to her?"
He put his hand over the receiver and turned to Veronica. "Veronica... It's... It's your step-mom. She's wondering if we have any idea where Duncan's run off to."
He hadn't even known Duncan had run off until now. And now a sudden pang of worry and guilt came over him.
And not only did he want to know where Duncan had run off to, but why?
Whatever was happening, it wasn't good.
