My voice just sounds lovelier every time I hear it. Take a long weekend trip to Santa Cruz, your cousin Jasmine has just gotten very ill. Play house with the uni students and I'll come find you. I'd prefer if you'd find the whale skeleton on your own by say, one PM, but I can find you otherwise. We need to play wallet tag, bring a pair of gloves that fit you nicely.

Ariadne, I recommend you get a new message. This one sounds like a reject from Coronation Street. [Brief chuckle.] You can tell him I said that, if you like. When you have a minute, call me.

[It rings three times, then...]

Hello. You've reached my voice mail. If you've got this number, I probably know you. You know what you have to do.

[Two hours later, he does, wondering if she'll be able to answer.]

[He tries not to sound concerned.] Ariadne. Got your message. Thanks for getting back to me.

Telephone tag happens. It's in the second drawer down on the right.

Just thought I'd see how you were doing.

Just as well if you don't ask, no. [There's traffic in the background. Someone sounds a horn and yells at someone else in a language that might be recognizable as Italian.] I haven't been in touch lately and thought it was about time. [The yelling continues. Arthur sighs and it gradually becomes distant. He's walked to another part of the street.]

Ariadne. It’s Arthur, though I’m sure you already knew that. I just wanted to let you know I’m coming home tomorrow night. Call me back. I love you. Bye.

[He picks up his phone after the second ring.] Hello.

I got the car shipped this afternoon. My mother was actually civil this time, but that was probably because I threatened to bring in the lawyers.

Great. [He smiles into the phone.] I’m going to have brunch at your parents’ house tomorrow.

Yes, you did, but I don’t mind hearing it twice. And tell Dom and the kids I say hi.

She didn’t say much, just opened the garage door so that they could take the car away. That was it.
