31 Summer Cold
Getting sick the night after a performance, Anna decides, and missing an opportunity to see her boyfriend, is terrible.
As she lay in bed, her Kleenex box and glass of orange juice sitting next to her, she can’t help but dwell on how miserable she feels. A simple cold, she thinks, should not have the power to flatten her this way. She wishes for a distraction or the return of her sister just so she has someone to talk to.
The buzzer beside the door sounds, and Anna answers it. It’s Jason.
For the first time all day, she smiles.
Anna Foster. Original character.
