every time a couple uses contraception?

She called me one morning and said, “Don’t call me.”
So I didn’t, even though I really liked her voice.
A week later she called, angry, and asked why I hadn’t called her. I pointed out that she told me not to call her. She denied it. I insisted. We argued. She cut me off.
She called a month later, crying. Was I punishing her? I was not, I protested.
Then why wouldn’t I call her? Tell the truth, none of this you-told-me-not-to. I gave three reasons. I didn’t know her number. I didn’t know who she was. She had called a wrong number.
“Oh,” she said. After a long pause, “I really like your voice.”
“I love your voice,” I said.
We’re both buying cell phones so we can continue to listen to each other every day until we meet and marry next spring.
