Randy set everything on the table and turned when he walked back into the room. She pointed to the phone. “That is an answering machine beside my phone. You do know what a phone is, right?” He nodded. “Okay, when you phone someone and they don’t answer, you can record a short message for them to listen to later.”
Studying the machine on the table, he tried to comprehend. “And this boyfriend left you a message?”
She nodded and dropped down onto the couch. “Yeah. He said he didn’t want to see me anymore that I was too blunt and it embarrassed him.”
He stood there for a moment. “What did he mean, too blunt?”
“I tend to say what I’m thinking, and a lot of people don’t like that as a quality in a girlfriend.” She sighed loudly.
He walked over to her. “I find it a redeeming quality. It is refreshing to hear the truth rather than a lie.”
