MY DESK PHONE RINGS, scaring the crap out of me. I work as a
receptionist for a printing company. “Good morning. Ava speaking. How
may I help you?”
“Ava, it’s David. Could you see me in my office when you finish with the
“Of course. I won’t be too long,” I answer.
“Take your time.”
I hang up. I’ve been working with David for a few years now; I enjoy the
peace of the small town I live in. And there are only a few of us who work
here, so I can be myself.
Twenty minutes later, I rise and wander over to David’s office. I knock
on his doorframe.
He looks up from his computer with a half-assed smile. Uneasiness
churns in my stomach. “Ava, come in. Please take a seat.”
I frown at his comment. He doesn’t ask me to sit down. Ever. Sweat
forms on my palms and I rub them quickly down my ripped blue jeans.
“Okay.” I step inside and sit down on the chair opposite him. I sit
straight, waiting for the reason for his call.
He rubs the back of his neck before gazing at me. Shit. He looks serious.

audible. I’m unable to talk, my mind going over the same thoughts. How
am I going to get through this? I can’t go back there.
“Are you okay, Ava? Would you like a glass of water? Ava?” He asks
again, louder this time.
I would rather have alcohol, but I know we don’t have any here in the
office. I nod slowly. His chair drags across the floor as he rises, and heavy
footsteps walk to the water fountain. The water trickling sounds like my
bleeding heart. The footsteps begin again as a shadow appears in front of
me. I slowly raise my head to see David has the cup held out in front of
him. Grabbing the cup slowly out of his outstretched hand, peering down at
the clear liquid, I raise the plastic cup and chug the water back, draining the
cup. The cold water coats my warm throat. So good.
David steps back around to his chair.
I offer a small smile and talk in a quiet voice. “Thanks.” I continue to
concentrate on breathing in through my nose, out through my mouth,
feeling my shoulders relax with every breath and my heartbeat regulating.
