You Rang? – Part One

Jambrea has been told that she should write the story of her military man so the two of us have been talking and decided to write a true story, kinda, almost.  So with out further ado, here is the beginning of her story.  We won’t tell what really happened and what didn’t.  You’ll just have to figure it out.  *giggle*  (Names have been changed to protect the innocent.  heehee)

“Offutt Operator number five, how may I help you?”

“Yes ma’am, could you dial a number for me.”



“Your call is going through now.”

Jasmine clicked off so the guy on the other end couldn’t hear her, but she could hear him to make sure his call went through. 

“John, this chick sounds hot.  Maybe I should call back.  Oh, hi dad.”


Jas clicked off, no longer needed on the line.  Laughing she called her roommate in the dorms.

“You will never guess what just happened.  This guy thinks I’m hot.”

“Who?” Dawn sounded sleepy.

“I’m sorry; I shouldn’t have woken you up.”

“No, that’s ok.  Who said you were hot?  Someone in our shop?”

“No!  It was some guy on the phone.”

“Really?  In town?”

“No, the number flashed saying Camp Lejeune.  It was just nice to hear him say my voice was hot.  Just go back to sleep.  I’ll see you at shift change.”

Dawn didn’t even say goodbye. She must have just gotten to sleep.  Darn it.  I should have waited.


A few minutes later…


“Offutt Operator number five, how may I help you?”

“Yes ma’am.  I just called there a couple minutes ago.”

“Were you disconnected?”

“No.  Ok, this might sound weird and I’m not a freak or anything, but I kept calling back until I got you again.  Do you have a minute to talk?”

“Um.  Ok, but just a minute.”

“Would you tell me your name?”

“I don’t know if I should.  I really shouldn’t even be talking to you now.”

“I can’t keep calling you Operator number five.  Well I can, but that is quite a mouthful.”

“Tell me your name first.” She requested.

            “My name is James, now you.”

“Ok James, my name is Jasmine.  Is there a reason you kept trying to get to my line?”

“You have a sexy voice and I just wanted to talk a little, maybe get to know you.  I’m from Nebraska and I’m heading home for my dad’s wedding next month and I don’t know, I guess I just wanted to talk to the woman with the sexy voice.”

“Um…thanks.”  Jas chuckled a little.  “You don’t sound too bad yourself.” 

Her face went up in flames and she shook her head at her lame comment, but flirting didn’t come naturally to her.  Jas didn’t have much experience in dealing with men and she was shy.  It took a while for her to feel comfortable to really talk to someone.  This couldn’t be too bad, right; they were only talking on the phone.

“Just talk to me.  I want to hear your voice.”

“What do you want to talk about?”

Jas listened to most people and found it hard to take the lead and just talk about herself.

“Tell me where you’re from.  Are you in the military or are you a civilian?”

“I’m…Shoot, our alarm went off.  I have to go.”  Jas hung up and hurried over to the board that signaled a warning conference coming through.

I wonder if he’ll call back.


Remember to come back next Wednesday to see what James has to say.

    Lovely picture! And ahhh…those men at Camp Lejeune. *grin* My husband was stationed at New River (right down the road) for a few years. If his name was James, (changed to protect the innocent/guilty, of course) I might be worried. LOL!

    OMG! Of course I read this. I just focused on the story not the explanation before.
    So there really is a “James.”
    Hmm – I wonder did James become Mrs JJJ?

    No, “James” did not become Mrs. JJJ! lol He was but a chapter in my life! *sigh* 😀 I will always remember him fondly. I’m sure everyone noticed all the J names and usually I wouldn’t do that, but my name starts with a J, James’ real name starts with a J and so does James’ brother! Crazy I know! lol
