Sarifina Calls Maxime

Photo by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

When my aunt went to the washroom, I seized the opportunity to call Maxime.  My heart pounded fast in excitement and I smiled as I imagined how surprised he would be when I tell him that I’m in London.  I arrived yesterday.

Eagerly, I punched in his phone number and waited anxiously for him to answer. 

“Hello?” a woman answered.

Surprised, it took me a few minutes to recover.  “Hello.  May I speak to Maxime?”

“Who’s this?”


“Maxime isn’t available,” she replied briskly and hung up.

“Who was that?” Maxime asked, entering the room.

“A wrong number,” Rosaline replied.

  1. Yes, well that fib won’t stay secret for very long, will it? Just as long as Serifina takes to recover from her surprise and rings back, I suspect.
    Maxime, you’ve got some explaining to do…
    Nice fluent story, Adele

    1. Yes, the fib will be discovered soon enough. There’s nothing going on between Maxime and the other woman, although she would like there to be. Don’t worry, Penny, Sarifina and Maxime will be in touch soon enough. Thanks 🙂

    1. No, Maxime isn’t two-timing Sarifina. He’s in love with her. This other woman has been trying to snag him for years but to no avail. You’re right, Jilly. This is a sequel to a longer much longer story. Maxime and Sarifina met in New York and had a world wind romance which lasted until his return to England but they have been in regular contact.
