45 The last time you were late

Anita flew into the theater, brushing aside offers to take her coat or show her to her dressing room.  “You’re late,” her make-up lady warned her, as she threw aside her furs and began to strip down so she could get into her costume.

“I know,” Anita apologized.  “I took my family to dinner, and we lost track of time.”

“Sit,” the lady ordered.  “The show starts in an hour, you’re in the opening scene, and I’ve got forty-five minutes to make you look flawless.”

“Sorry,” Anita murmured. 

Forty-four minutes later, Anita stood behind the curtain ready for her debut.    

Anita Dawson.  Original character.
