The phone rings.
She pauses mid movement.
It’ll be him.

The phone rings.
Does she answer?
It could also be the other man.

The phone rings.
If she answers and it’s him, what then?
Then she’s stuck in conversation.

The phone rings.
One will help her, the other will upset her.
Time is running out.

The phone rings.
She reaches for it.
Her hand hovers.

The phone rings.
She pulls away.
Will he call back?

The phone rings.
Enough.
Time to answer.

The phone stops ringing.
