Gently, Sweetly Home Again - Part 12

by Allen Henriquez

 

A month later Nate and Zack are both neatly dressed and sitting in an office in the Veteran’s administration waiting to issue their military discharge papers, to have them certified. The other person in the room is Denise Kirkpatrick. Denise is an attractive Black Woman with her papers on her lap in an envelope and a cell phone in her hand. Zack, sees her, and is interested. “Have you been waiting long?” Zack asks.

A clerk simultaneously calls out “Denise Kirkpatrick” Denise: smiles, stands up, looks at Zack, shakes her head no, and walks into the clerk’s office.

Denise comes out of the office less than ten minutes later, with Zack standing to hand her a note. Denise opens it, to read Zack’s full name and cell phone number. Denise smiles and responds “I’ll call you, soon.”
