You Rang? – Part Two

James hung up the phone with a smile on his face and dialed his brother’s number.

 The first thing his brother asked was, “Did you call her back?”

“Right after we hung up with dad.  It took a bit to get back with her, but I would recognize that voice anywhere.  At first I didn’t think she would actually talk to me, but I know her name now, Jasmine.”

“What if she’s ugly, with a beard or has a husband or is old?”

“I don’t think that matters right now John.  I just talked to her once”

“Will you call her back?”

“I don’t know yet.  I need to hit the head, I’ll talk to you next week when we call dad back.”

James hung up and headed to the latrine to get ready for tomorrow.  He had a few supplies he needed to order for Bravo Company’s deployment next week and he didn’t want his Sergeant on his ass about it.  He knew if a he was late there would be hell to pay.

As James wondered back to his bunk his thoughts were on the woman with the sexy voice.  He fell asleep with her voice running through his mind wondering what she looked like.

The next morning James kept getting distracted.  What was it about this person?  He didn’t even know her.  He just had a name and a voice.  She could be anybody.  Glancing at the clock for the fifth time in thirty minutes he new he was going to call her again.

“Thompson, what seems to be your malfunction today?  I’ve asked you three times about these forms”

“Sorry sir, I have the signed forms here in my desk.”

“Put them on my desk and get out of here.”

“Yes sir”

Rushing from the office he barely remembered to put his cover on before getting outside.  With in minutes he was in his room with the phone to his ear calling Offutt Air Force Base and hoping the voice from his dreams would answer.

“Offutt Operator number two how may I direct your call?”

“Sorry, wrong number.”

He went through four people before finally getting number five.

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


“Excuse me?”

“Sorry, this is James, from last night.” He hoped she didn’t forget him this soon.

“Yes, how may I direct your call?”

“Is someone standing there?”

“Yes that’s right.”

“May I call you back later?” he inquired.

“Yes, that is correct.  I’ll direct you now.”

“Talk to you soon Jasmine.”

James really could listen to her all night.  He wondered how long he should wait before calling her back.  He really hated sitting in the common room, but he really didn’t have a choice.  He shared the phone with the whole floor.  For the most part the guys tried to give each other space when on the phone, but it didn’t always work out that way. 

Next time they spoke he would have to get her email address so they could get to know each other.  Maybe even share a few pictures.  If things worked out maybe they could even meet in a few weeks when he was in town.  Anything was possible.


Come back next week and see what Jasmine thinks about James calling her back.
