My Actor Boyfriend

My entry for Bliss magazine competition


1. My Actor Boyfriend

I sat glued to my computer screen, watching my boyfriend on BBC One.  It was a crime drama he had been given a guest appearance on.

I laughed at some of the things he said.  He’d practised them with me about thirty times, but it always feels like the first.

I always feel like he’s putting on a show just for me, though I know there are millions of other girls watching him right now.

Just as the detectives were taking in the suspect, played by my boyfriend, for questioning, my phone began ringing on the desktop in front of me.  The caller ID said it was him.

Pressing the answer button, I teasingly said, “Hey, Mister Big Actor.”

He playfully growled in my ear, “You know I hate it when you call me that.”

I giggled at that.

“Anyway, I called because the episode is airing tonight,” he said.

“Yes, I’m watching it right now,” I replied. 

“Well, what do you think?” he asked, eagerly.

“Mm…I don’t really have an opinion yet.”

He laughed, knowing I was joking, but still played along.  “I have time off starting next weekend,” he said.  “Maybe you can tell me then over lunch.”

My smile quickly became a big grin.  “I’d like that.”

“So…Saturday, our place at one?” he suggested.  ‘Our place’ meant our favourite restaurant where we went at least once whenever he had free time.

“It’s a date,” I replied.  “See you then.”

“See ya.  Bye.”

“Bye…” I stayed for a few more seconds before I disconnected the call and went back to watching the drama.  We don’t talk much on the phone, preferring to when we are face to face.

As I watched the images on the screen, I thought of how I couldn’t wait for the next weekend.
