9:14pm: Text of the Day

Text message: a small, hopeful bell chiming in the kitchen.

Goosebumps everywhere. Jump from the couch. Bound across apartment to the phone.

Auto text reminder from Straighttalk: you will be billed $45 on 2/4/16.

Heart drops in thick wet pieces like putty to the floor.

Return to couch.
