Do you want to swap? I'd be over the moon if you'd read I Blame the Rabbit for me. Hope for some feedback from you. Keep writing!

Forgive me for correcting your grammar. Your run on sentences confused me so I HAD TO put the commas in.
“I close my eyes, letting the cool…invisible, yet tangible beckoning, as if it were… waves.” I smiled slightly, and let out…”

“Oh,” I yelped - jumping
I fished out my cell phone (readying to) speed-dialing my boss. –perhaps try that.
“He stopped me.” How? You have 11 words available (if you choose to use “readying to”)
“No need to bother your boss for me.
My name’s Kevin…I will. Your name again? -(That leaves it open ended –something more is going to happen as he’s switched his attention back to her - Ooo an exact 500. Hmmm?
I like this. It is sweet and a fun read. Good luck in the contest.
