She had just gotten into her apartment when a shrill ringing filled the air. She sighed softly, setting down her go-bag as she grabbed the cordless phone. She plopped down on her couch, unrecognizing the number. She rubbed her eyes and leaned back against the plush sofa, groaning from the aches in her body.
“Emily! Hi, it’s Diana, from the wedding!” Diana’s voice was loud and rushed as she continued, “Aaron gave me your number at the wedding.” Emily could practically hear the smile spread across her face.

The way he caressed her cheek, touched her hips, and the way his unbelievably soft lips had plundered hers that night. A dampness began to heat her as she closed her eyes just thinking about his touches. He was so… Memorizing. The red head’s sharp voice broke her from her fantasy.
“I’m great! We just returned from our honeymoon in Hawaii. How’s Aaron?” Emily smiled and coughed softly as she began to pick at her nails. “Um, he’s good. We’re good, I guess.”
“You guess? Oh, come on, Emily! Well, anyways, Ken and I were planning on going out Friday night to celebrate, and we only thought it’d be better if you and Aaron came along with us.”
Emily paused for a moment and cleared her throat before running a hand through her hair. “Oh, that’s… Sweet. I’d have to ask him, actually-“
“Actually, Ken said he was going to call him soon. Well, I hope you both can come. It’d be great to see you both again!” Before Emily could answer, the phone clicked off, leaving her alone in her apartment to contemplate the offer.
Ken dialed Aaron’s number from the other room, “Hey, bro!”
