Love on the Rocks

by sandy montgomery

Galron rolled over and squinted at the clock 4:30. He hadn't slept much. The bed was as hard as a rock. He got up and stretched. He sipped coffee from a Styrofoam cup and ate leftover pizza for breakfast as he watched the sunrise over the parking lot. The light through the window turned from grey to gold as the sun rose.
Finally Galron glanced at his cell phone. Three messages since he left her last night and two states away. Sweet Grace.
"Had a great time tonight. Can't wait to see you again. Xxx ooo"
An hour later:
"Um have you seen the art thief on the news. He looks like you lol. Better watch out. ;)"
And then:
"The police were here. I told them everything I knew. You better run and keep on running.
Galron sighed tossed the phone into the trash and headed out.
