Can You Keep a Secret

by Sophie Kinsella

Added by: DEnver


Emma is sitting on a turbulent plane. She's always been a v. nervous flyer. She really thinks that this could be her last moment.

How she scans the backs of intellectual books and pretends she's read them. How she does her hair up like Princess Leia in her bedroom. How she's not sure if she has a G-spot, and whether her boyfriend could find it anyway.

He's not going to make you happy. He's not going to fulfil you.' I stare at him, feeling wrong-footed. 'Who says?' 'I've got to know Connor. I've sat in meetings with him. I've seen how his mind works. He's a nice guy ...

'That was fantastic, Emma,' comes Jack's voice in my ear. 'You were great! Absolutely logistical assessment,' he adds more loudly as we pass Cyril. 'I've never spoken like that in my life,' I say. 'I've never operational management,' I quickly add, as we pass a couple of people from Accounts.

'Connor, you don't know who it is. Actually, it's not anyone from work. I just made that up. It's this guy who lives over in west London, you've never met him, his name is um Gary, he works as a postman.' 'Don't lie to me! I know exactly who it is.' He folds his arms and gives me a long, penetrating look. 'It's Tristan from Design, isn't it?' *

I had a good time tonight.' 'So did I,' I say, staring down at the bench. 'I had a really good time.' 'We'll have a good time again.' Gently he lifts my chin until I'm looking straight at him, 'I promise, Emma.' He leans forward and this time there's no hesitation.

By the time we've finished our tarragon chicken with rocket salad and chips, my entire body is tensed up with misery. This date is a disaster. A complete disaster.
