‘Is that a toothbrush in your bag?’
‘Why do you have a toothbrush with you?’
Let me think…
A voice comes from behind me. ‘I always bring a toothbrush to work.’
I turn to find myself face-to-face with Adam, looking gorgeous in burgundy.
‘Thank you, Adam.’ I turn back to Beatrice. ‘See? Perfectly normal. I’m just going to get a drink.’
When I get back, she and Adam are chatting.
‘… I make soda bread,’ he finishes up.
Beatrice looks at me.
I smile. ‘So do I!’
‘Wow. Toothbrushes and soda bread. You must be soulmates.’
Thank you Beatrice.
