5 minutes: She waited for a reply

It came sooner than she had expected.

Was he always checking his texts? She read it over. Something off the cuff. Informal.

Maybe that's why his replies always came so fast. He never put much thought into them. Just whatever happened to cross his mind at the time.

She, on the other hand, would spend half an hour just deciding what verb to use. She didn't want to be misunderstood nor run the risk of being misunderstood.

He didn't seem to care, or at least, didn't seem to care what he was saying. There was no craft to his words, but he never dragged his replies out for days on end.
