Heart pounding in my chest, I called the number. When it began ringing I nearly put the phone down but I couldn’t back out now. Not after all the time I’d spent searching.
“Hello?” said a very sleepy, confused sounding voice.
Shit. Mentally I counted in my head. It might be 9pm here but that made it 2am there. Not only had I randomly called someone who might not even be the person I was looking for but it was the middle of the night.
The voice sounded a bit more awake now and was definitely Alex. My Alex.
I burst into tears. “Don’t marry her,” I whispered.
“What? Who is this? Is that Natalie?”
“Please don’t marry her,” I said, sobbing now. His voice sounded so good and I wanted him here with me, not a million miles away or however many it really was. Anywhere outside my bedroom was too far away.
