When I Was You; Amber Garza
Mira - 2020
It was a Monday morning in early October when I first heard about you. I was getting out of the shower when my phone rang. After throwing on a robe and cinching it, I ran into my bedroom, snatching my cell off the nightstand. Unknown number.
Normally I'd let those go. But I'd already run all the way in here, and I thought maybe it was a call from Dr, Hillerman's office.
"Hello? " I answered, breathless. Goose bumps rose on my pale flesh, so I pulled the robe tighter around me, My sopping wet hair dripped down my back.
"Is this Kelly Medina?"
Great, a salesperson. "Yes," I answered, wishing I hadn't picked up.
"Hi, Kelly, this is Nancy from Dr. Cramer's office. I'm calling to remind you of your well baby appointment this Friday at ten a.m."
"Well-baby"? I let out a surprised laugh. You're about nineteen years too late."
I just started this and was surprised how quickly I was hooked. What do you think read more or pass?
