Who's that Chick?

I seem to really be struggling with satisfying designs and endings lately and this is yet another product of that. I knew immediately that I wanted the picture to be framed by an iPhone, but after that, I didn't know where to go from there. The design just seemed really bland and colorless. The story also seems mediocre to me, nothing bad about it, but nothing really good either. What made it difficult was that I really just didn't know what else to do with it, so I'm calling it done as it is.

Let me know what you guys think!

Transcript: Tom and Jake had been close friends since childhood, but over the last couple of years, they had begun to drift apart as they each pursued different interests. 
One evening, Tom was walking past a majestic fountain when a sense of nostalgia overcame him.  Remembering the lively times they’d once had, Tom had nonchalantly made a silent wish that they would somehow be able to rekindle their friendship once again. Digging into his pocket for some loose change, he’d sealed the wish with a flip of a coin, which had landed with a satisfying splash into the water below. 
20 minutes later, Tom was awed to find a text from Jake on his phone. Maybe the wish he’d made was coming true after all.
“Dude, you’re never going to believe this...” the text read.
“What?” He texted back. 
“It’s probably best if I just show you.” Came the reply. A few seconds later, a picture of a hot blonde showed up on his screen. Tom chuckled, leave it to Jake to get a girl like that.
“Wow, that’s a real hottie. You lucky bastard. Who’s the blonde chick? New girlfriend?” 
A few minutes elapsed before Jake answered back, “I AM the blonde chick. I need you at my house, now”
