Message 1. Tuesday, August 5th, 3:30 pm.

“So it’s looking like I really am going to be working late today. Donnie’s still not back, and I just so happen to be the next one down to handle his workload. Also got a couple of meetings lined up. Probably… Uh, probably won’t be home until ten. Don’t worry about keeping dinner warm, just make something for yourself and I’ll pick up a burger on the way home. Love you.”

“Almost forgot; make sure you fill up Royce’s bowl. I forgot it on the way out. Can’t have the poor little guy going hungry, can we? Again, love you, Mara. See you at ten.”

“Hey, babe, it’s me again. I’m not going to be home for a while. Donnie’s covering for me so I can get out an hour early, but just from what I can see outside, traffic’s backed up all to hell. I’ll try to make it home in time for dinner. Love you!”

“Sorry to clog up the answering machine, hon. I got to the office a little late, and I’m bogged down. Might not be back ‘till midnight. Make sure Royce gets fed; I’ll handle my own dinner. See you soon, love you, bye.”

“Mara, it’s Don. Did Jason leave his phone at the house? I can’t reach him. It’s kind of urgent. Call me back, soon as you can.”

“I’m just reaching uptown now. Traffic’s still fucking horrible, but it looks like it’s clearing up past the light up ahead. We’ll see how it goes. Shouldn’t be too much longer, regardless. Love you.”

“Hi, this is Jen from the shelter! Good news: the cat you and your husband have had your eye on has officially been cleared for adoption! If you want, we can order the tag now. The chosen name on file is “Royce”, that’s R-O-Y-C-E. If you want to change it, call us back or come back any time, it’s a real simple process. Thank you!”

“Mara, I still can’t get in touch with Jason. You seriously need to call me back. I don’t want to assume the worst, but… you know. It’s been a while since his last episode. I’m just saying. Call me.”

“Mara, it’s Don again. I found his car. He must’ve got in a wreck, folded the damn thing half over a tree. Bunch of guys have been trying to get it out for almost seven hours now. Traffic’s all backed up from it, but I don’t see him anywhere. I’ll come over right away.”
