Short, but so so good! I love that he Beesly women slapped Jim.
What I don’t get is why Jim is still with Karen. Shouldn’t they have broken up the moment Jim sent his text saying he loved Pam?
Hope he gives Pam some answers in the next chapter.
BTW, love the flirting going on
Author's Response: Yep! Thanks! Don't worry, there will be a lot of discussion in the next chapter!

Interesting perspective from Jim there at the start. The realization that the office is now just a dull place to work without Pam seems very big here. Nice that he got the gumption to start after Pam.
Pam though feels kind of all over the place here. After she recovers first she's angry, she's shocked, then all of a sudden smiling and flirty. Just seems like an abrupt shift.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm glad that Jim is there and they're in the same place again. However considering all the deep feelings it seems a little rushed that Pam would go through all those emotions so quickly.
Still looking forward to what comes next though.
Author's Response: Thanks a lot!! You're right! I'll take all of this into consideration!

Welcome to MTT! I can totally buy Pam snapping and making a big move. She’s been so set in place, that breaking things off with Roy & having things go so poorly with Jim could definitely be a catalyst to even bigger changes.
I can understand Jim wanting to check in on her too. Although, I did find his messages a little out of character, not that he sent them, but he did read as perhaps a little younger/less mature than the Jim we see on the show. I don’t think he would be that casual given how strained things are between them at that point. The message at the end definitely fits a bit more with his character.
That said, you’ve set things up nicely and left me wondering what Pam might do in response to his message! It’s pretty brave of Jim to lay it all on the line for her again...
Author's Response: Yeah, I understand where you're coming from about the whole messages thing, it does seem pretty OOC but I think he was just a little frantic. And thank you!

Very interesting premise there. I can easily see that Pam would snap like that and disappear. Especially after all the heartache she went through in S3. Also makes sense she'd try to be a newer type person like that in California, even if it breaks my JAM loving heart a bit.
Good on Jim to try and reach out to her and also to keep trying to reach out to her.
The next few chapters could be very interesting as well.
Author's Response: Thanks a lot! Also I'm a really big fan of a lot of your fics :)
