The Phone Call

 I'm dancing in the kitchen stirring together some mac and cheese because I'm lonely and need comfort food. My phone suddenly stutters and the snippet of "Peter Pan" that is Amber's ringtone starts. I put down the spoon and spin around to grab my phone off of the breakfast bar. I smile and accept the phone call.

"Hello my lovely!" I turn back around and stir together my mac and cheese one more time before shuffling to the cabinet to grab a bowl.

"Hey. How's it going?" Amber sounds tired and winded. I purse my lips as I spoon my lunch into the bowl.

"It's fine, I just made lunch. What's wrong? What happened?" I put the bowl down on the breakfast bar and lean against it waiting for her to answer me.

"Umm...well, I'm in LA now," I hum in response. "And umm...I kinda sorta passed out in the middle of the terminal." I hear myself gasp.

"WHAT?! WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU PASSED OUT? ARE YOU ALRIGHT? THIS IS WHY I DON'T LIKE IT WHEN YOU TRAVEL ALONE." I can hear Amber attempting to calm me down as I continue to scream into the phone. I finally calm down and take a breath and wait for her to answer me.

"I passed out. Someone bumped into me and I was really light headed, then I bumped into someone else and just passed out. But you will never believe who I met, Sam. You seriously won't." 

"This is why I told you to eat breakfast Amber. Seriously, why do you do this to me? Well, who did you meet?" I'm angrily stabbing my macaroni and shoveling it into my mouth.

"Umm...Xiumin....Like EXO's Xiumin." I choke on my mouthful of macaroni and start sputtering into the phone, gasping for breath. "Sam, are you okay? Sam! SAM!" I cough and beat my fist against my chest while trying to swallow my pasta. I take a huge breath and pause for a few seconds before answering. 

"You. Met. Xiumin? As in, your idol, your bias, the baozi. The real baozi?" I walk to the fridge and grab out a water bowl, opening it swiftly and gulping half the bottle down hungrily. 

"YES! SAM I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO! HE GAVE ME HIS KAKAO AND TALKED TO ME AND WAS WORRIED ABOUT ME AND OH MY GOD SAM WHAT DO I DO?!" I lean against the counter and just stare at the picture of the two of us from last christmas, covered in snow with my arm slung over Amber's shoulder. I'm just as shell shocked as her and don't know what to say.

" message him?" I honestly don't know what to say. I'm freaking out for you. I stare at my food and sigh before pushing the bowl to the side. It will have to wait until after I get off the phone.

"I actually kinda already did. And he messaged back." I sputter into the phone again and pout at her giggling. "He wants to meet me again. Like after the show." I hum into the phone.

"Well, you are going to right?" I sip on my bottle of water and listen to her scream into the pillow.

"I don't know. This is insane, Sam. I mean, I met Minseok! THE MINSEOK!"

"Exactly, and now you win his heart with your charming ways and your bangin' body." I snicker into the phone and cackle as she snorts.

"Fuck off Sam." I continue to cackle, thankful that the counter is holding me up. "I will meet up with him if he wants to meet. I just, fuck I'm nervous. How do I do this? I haven't dated in a long time. Everyone assumes we are lesbians. I date you."

"Just be yourself, stupid. You are amazing. If he doesn't see it, he is blind. Also, you are my wife, of course you date me." I can practically hear her rolling her eyes at me. 

"You don't make this easier Sam."

"I know I don't. But you love me." I grab my bowl of mac and cheese and start to slowly eat again. "Shouldn't you be resting right now? Take a nap silly. Call me later okay?" 

"Yeah...I should. I'm tired. I miss you." I swallow my food and hum at Amber. "Love you Sam. I'll talk to you later okay?"

"Of course. I miss you and love you too. Get some rest okay?" I hear her hum in agreement. "Talk to you later. Bye love."

"Bye." I wait for Amber to hang up before setting my phone down and slowly digging into my mac and cheese. I can't believe that she met Xiumin. What were the chances of that?
