Maybe she misplaced your number before she got a chance to put your number in her Contacts list, and when she saw your text, she didn't know who it was from or didn't know if it was a "mistaken text" (I've gotten texts from strangers a few times that I have no idea why I got them - maybe they entered the wrong phone #?) and decided not to answer it.
OR maybe her phone was being charged and she didn't know she had a text.
OR maybe she lost her phone, or misplaced it and didn't have it with her.
OR maybe she was on a date and couldn't answer you back quickly.
OR maybe her phone service is messed up and she didn't receive it (my service was messed up recently and I had 15 voice messages I didn't know I had received - those people didn't get mad at me for not calling them back right away - hell, I didn't know they had called for days!!!)..the point is: there could be lots of valid reasons for her not texting you back immediately.
Because you can't know why she didn't text you back, it seems a tad "dramatic" for you to take her silence so personally - to feel "slighted" at her not responding to you immediately.
Just try to chill. There's no reason to "forget about it". There's no need to get upset. It is what it is - an unanswered text (so far) for unknown reasons - there's no need to take that personally and there's no need to "punish" her for it (by deciding to forget about it or get angry that she "ignored" you even though she hinted she wanted to stay in touch).
