Thanks for reading my first chapter. There's a lot of texting in this chapter. Here's the guide.
Michael = Bold Italic
Mia = Bold
Midori (why do they all have M names?) = Italic
I sit in my apartment, praying that my plan will work. I don't even know if the CardioArm got to Genovia yet. Midori said she would text me when Prince Phillipe had actually seen the CardioArm. As I sit there and hope for the impossible, my phone buzzes.
'It's here' the text says.
'Thanks' I write back.
I sit there a while longer. It's only a matter of time until…
HA HA! My phone buzzes again and I quickly open the email. It's from Mia!
I can't tell you how surprised yet pleased I was to hear from my dad today about a certain delivery that arrived at the Royal Genovian Hospital. You can't even begin to imagine what you've done for him and for the people of Genovia. Your generosity will never be forgotten. I would so like to thank you in person on their behalf (when you have time).
YES! My plan is working. I delivered the CardioArm (free of charge I might add) and her father went up in the polls. I made Mia happy and she wants to see me in person. I write back:
I would love to see you "in person." How about tonight?
P.S. No need to thank me on behalf of your father or Genovia. I only sent it because I thought it might help your dad in the elections, and that, in turn, would make you happy. So you see my motives were completely selfish.
It takes forever for Mia to write back. By the time I here from her, it's obvious we're not meeting tonight.
Hi, Michael! Tonight won't work (obviously), and tomorrow is Boris's senior project (his concert at Carnegie Hall). Friday is Senior Skip Day. Are you free for lunch on Friday?
I write back immediately.
Friday for lunch is great. Want to meet at the Central Park Boathouse, lakeside, one o'clock?
I hit send, then realize my mistake. Did I just sign that 'Love, Michael'? I seriously need to think about what I write before I write it. Ugh! Oh well.
Another text. This one is from Lilly though. She wants me to be by the Waldorf-Astoria elevators at midnight on Saturday. She says Mia might need my assistance. Isn't that when they're having their prom? I guess I'm going. I ain't wearing a tux though.
