Katherine clutched the script to her chest, covering it with her creamcolored cardigan as she rushed through the rain. Racing down the
uneven sidewalk, she avoided puddles and sprays from cars driving through
overflowing gutters. The sun hovered above the horizon, but stormy clouds
gave the illusion of night.
By the time she got home, rain soaked her cardigan, wetting several
script pages. She grimaced and set the papers on the kitchen table before
removing the cardigan and hanging it on the back of a chair. She kicked out
of her boots and peeled off her socks, dropping them with a slop.
Auburn hair stuck to her freckled skin as she pulled the strands out of her
face. After grabbing the wet papers, she spread them on the wooden floor.

well tomorrow. She’d worked hard and wouldn’t give up because of a bad
