“Hey, Angel,” Levi giddily greeted his girlfriend through the phone. There were some muffled sounds on the other end of the line. “Levi,” Angelica announced, in a surprised manner. “I just wanted to let you know that I’m getting ready to get on the plane,” he placed his luggage on the small carousel, his hand still latched onto the phone. “Oh, you’re coming here?” “Yeah, … Continue reading The Third Chance.
