Tessa squeezed her eyes closed and breathed deeply to try to dissipate
the panic locking up her body.
“This cannot be happening. This cannot be happening.”
Thanks to the Wish Upon a Star theme the Student Equality Center had
decided on, the ballroom was dimly lit. The lighting must be creating an
illusion, making him a figment of her imagination.
NBA superstar Jordan Davis had not just walked into her line of vision.
Why would he be at a fundraiser for underprivileged kids? Memories of
attending her first benefit with him flashed through her head. Stupid
question. Why wouldn’t he be at this fundraiser?
The Center’s mission was to provide poverty-stricken children with free
tutors. This wasn’t a big enough fundraiser to attract the attention of
someone of Jordan’s caliber, though, right? Tessa clasped her cold hands
together to stop them from trembling and dragged in another breath.
She cautiously opened her eyes and focused on the spot where Jordan’s
mirage had been. Little by little, her breathing returned to normal as she
broadened her search and still didn’t see him.
“Are you okay?” Laura, her boss and friend at the Center, startled her
out of her obsessive scanning.
Tessa smiled. “I’m nervous. Why am I talking again? Why aren’t you?”

A guest caught Laura’s attention, and she walked away. Tessa picked up
her speech cards and ran through them. She knew the speech by heart, but
she was scared she would forget every word as soon as she stood in front of
the intimidating crowd. Luckily, she was the first speaker so she could get it
over with early.
The spotlight was so bright that Tessa couldn’t see the audience, which
was a blessing, but she could still feel their eyes. Hopefully, they would
attribute her flushed and sweaty face to the lights and not as a sign of her
As soon as Tessa uttered the last word, the stress and anxiety that had
locked up her body slid away. Before the last of the applause died, she was
off the stage and weaving her way to her table in the back.
When she got there, her co-workers stood and clapped for her. Her
cheeks heated up, but she was grateful for their support.
“Sit down, you idiots!” She chuckled as she motioned with her hands.
As they settled back down, Tessa took her seat and began eating. Most
everyone else had finished during her speech, so she let the conversation
drift around her while she enjoyed her meal.
There were still a couple of minutes before the next speaker when she
was done. Tessa excused herself to go to the restroom. There were several
