Should He Call?

He stood at the window, gazing out at the snow covered roses and thought of Maddie. 

In his pocket was her telephone number which he had gotten from Sergeant McCoy when he stopped at the gas station where the young man worked. 

Should he call her?  His heartbeat accelerated at the thought.  Would she be happy to hear from him or would she remind him of why he shouldn’t have called?  Would it be wrong for him to call and let her know that he had heard about her young man’s death or that he had received the Christmas card?

    1. You’re welcome 🙂 Thanks for the great suggestion. I will definitely to do that. Yes, it does feel like a serial, doesn’t it? They want to be together but, he has a family and there’s the issue with interracial relationships in those times as well.
