‘He hasn’t texted yet. It’s been over twelve hours!’ said Rowena staring at her phone. ‘Should I message him?’

‘The rule is to wait three days. He’ll think you’re desperate,’ said Anna with the sapience of a seventeen-year-old.

    Did he send? Did he send? I have never understood the 3 day rule… I came to know about it only through sitcoms ?
