Jamie walked out of Max's office. He couldn't stop himself wondering if the demise of Kate had been his fault. Maybe if he had loved her, touched her in the places she had wanted him to maybe she'd still be alive. He couldn't and wouldn't tell Max that she offered herself up to him. Max had told him that their relationship was on rocky waters at the time, and Jamie didn't see any reason to upset Max with the news of his girlfriend's want of Jamie. He didn't even know back then that the couple were dealing with issues and just thought she was playing. He never once thought of trying to seduce her and thought the case was the same vice versa. But because he was determined not to tell Max, he was doomed into a state of wondering. Maybe if Ellie hadn't turned up when she had . . .
His phone buzzed in his pocket. He'd look and reply to it later. He went to his office, he had to phone a company about possibly sponsoring a charity event. His mind was far from Ellie at Kerplzz as he spoke to a girl called Nancy at the company he was hoping to secure a sponsor from. He chatted with her for a long while. It was fun chatting to her. He had a real rapport with her. When he clocked off at 6.00pm that evening, he caught Max on his way out of the building.
'Where you off to then?' Jamie asked in a jovial tone.
'I was going for a drink, join me if you want,' Max told him. Jamie thought he'd better go to keep an eye on the nearly-widowed man. That's how it felt anyway. Just to keep watch. That's the excuse Jamie clutched to when he got back to his apartment that night. Max had drunk him under the table, but he still had a few. Max wasn't coping very well with Kate's death. It was understandable. Jamie still kept his secret though. Whatever happened, Max did not have to know that Kate had come to Jamie perhaps to seek refuge.
I have no idea where this story is going, so if you could help me out I would really appreciate it!
