"I can't believe Renee's making us take a quiz tomorrow."
Walter just looked at Sam. He knew he didn't have much time but the words just wouldn't come.
Sam waved her freshly manicured hand in front of Walter's face.
Tell her already Walter thought to himself.
"Sam I have something to tell you."
Walter was about to blurt it out when the phone rang.
"Are you going to get that?"
Walter wanted to murder the phone. It was probably some telemarketer trying to sell him something. He picked up the phone.
"Hello sir how are you doing today?"
Walter felt like screaming. Time was running out. Derek was sure to walk in at any time.
"What do you want?"
When the woman started talking about the Magic Blender Derek hung up.
"I have something to tell you Sam."
Walter closed his eyes and took a deep breath.
"Sam I'm in love with you."
Walter opened his eyes. Derek had arrived with a pizza from Luigi's. Sam was grabbing three plates.
"Balls. She didn't hear me."
Derek walked over to the fridge and grabbed three beers.
To Be Cont.
