“You’ve been there for months! How many more villages to go?” She chuckled, pleased to hear his voice again.
“Beautiful area,” he heaved a sigh, “I saw elephants by the river.”
“You know, the sunsets here are really gorgeous.”

“Hey babe, gotta go.” He winked into the rearview mirror, then kept his phone.
She could hear the roar of his dusty motorbike as the phone lost connection.
7 months, 6 days, 5 hours.
For someone’s quietly keeping time.
