"Why?" I paced in front of her, knowing she thought I was being ridiculous and self-centered.
"Because you don't know her, that's why." Her words were too callous--too real.

"Yeah, but we've texted--that counts." I fumbled for reason.
"Texting doesn't count."
"You haven't read our texts." I assured her.
"It doesn't matter--it doesn't count".
"I'm telling you, she's the one." I stamped out my cigarette.
"And I'm telling you to put down the phone."
