****

When the telephone rings, she knows who it'll be.

His laughter over the phone reminds her why they met offline in the first place, reminds her of her first sight of him, a scruffy, middle-aged man hunched over a coffee shop table. Not love at first sight. Something else.

She betrayed him, over and over, in a computer game that wasn't really a game.

They don't talk about it. They don't talk about forgiveness, either; he just emails her, invites her to join his party after everything. He just calls her in the evenings, until one afternoon she calls him.
