The second I get his text I know the battle is over. He asks me to come without asking, I'm playing hard to get but it's like trying to reverse a waterfall. Chloe goes with me in the cab, she holds my hand in hers and we watch Manhattan dissolve like smoke in the rear-view mirror. "I'll find someone" she says when we get to his Brooklyn address at half past two and I know that she will.
Henry makes me breakfast, lunch and dinner in bed on Sunday, I only get up to take a shower and watch him study. I know he's touched other girls the way he touches me but I try not to think about it.
When I get back home Monday morning I'm in the same dress I put on 36 hours earlier, he kept my underwear. "Now you have a reason to come back" he says. Chloe hugs me and tells me I look cute in his black D&G boxers, rushes off to work and leaves me alone with my daydreams.
