Tricia had written her response to Ollie’s email early on the 7th day of the Month. She assumed Ollie had seen it.
For some reason she expected him to respond. However, by bed time, there was still no response.
On the 8th, when she did her morning log on, there was no response. Nor was there one on the 9th, 10th, 11th….
She assumed if he wrote again, it would be on the 20th, according to his ‘protocols’.
Having been free of Ollie for over forty years, she was familiar with his thought patterns. It depended on how he ‘read’ her response how he would respond.
