For a second there i thought you disappeared
"What did you tell him?" Liz wanted to know as they sat in the den where the lap top was.
"Oh, you know, just wanted to wish him a nice Thanksgiving in person." Syd told her. Next thing she knew Syd was waving at Kip. He was on video. Still she wasn't sure she wanted him to see her. But what was she suppose to do.
And there was someone with Kip. He had someone he wanted to introduce. Liz just stared at the screen. She couldn't believe it.
"Hey, I think I found your double." He laughed with his arm around the mystery woman. "This is Gem." He smiled. "I work with Gem." He told her.
Gem looked like a doe in the headlights. Unsure, she wanted to be in the video cam, either.
"You're so funny." Syd smiled back. "Look, I have some one here who needs to talk to you."
Liz did her best to smile. "Hey." Liz gave a little wave. She saw his serious stare then. He didn't say anything. "Happy Thanksgiving." Liz could barely get out.
"Yeah, Happy Thanksgiving." He grumbled.
Liz bit her upper lip. "I - I have something to tell you." It was a start. She just hoped she could finish, but her throat was so raw. She could hardly make the words come out. If only she could have said, "I met someone too." It would have been so much easier than the real truth.
