I popped my head around Charlotte's door ....
"What's up Char? Not seen you all evening."
Charlotte was slumped over her desk. Her slender fingers tightly clawed around a newspaper.
"Oh, hey, hi. Sorry, I'm locked onto something at the moment. Catch up with you in five?"
"Are you sure you're okay?"
Charlotte inhaled, sighed and turned towards me.
"Remember David? The guy I had that fling with two years a ago."
Charlotte looked at me in disbelief.
"He's dead. Threw himself onto the tracks."
"Shit. You're kidding?"
Charlotte gave me that look.
