Her hands were trembling just at the thought of that call. What would she do if the answer was no, but her life would change drastically if it was a yes. People would know her name and her face. They would follow her every move and want to know every detail of her personal life. If the answer was no though…she would be homeless. “No,” she thought, “I can’t think like that. I will be able to pay my bills, somehow, someway. I will make it through.”
She paced nervously throughout the small apartment. The pure bleakness of the tan walls and old furniture mixed with the Febreze masked stale scent set her on edge. Not in the way that one might think though. It was home; a home and lifestyle that was hanging in the balance. One phone call would determine the rest of her life. Meow. Her cat was just waking up from a long nap. She thought, “I wish my life was like Olive’s. The life of a cat must be easy; never have to worry about there being food or a home, always able to take a nap and lay in the sun.” Olive walked over to her and sat at her feet. This made her feel at ease for one moment before the phone rang.
She raced to the phone; every heartbeat she could feel through her chest. She took a moment when she picked up the phone and looked at it, afraid of what might come. She pressed the talk button and stopped breathing as she lifted it to her ear. “Hello?” she sounded shaky. She could hear her agent laughing on the other end. He has never been much of a hard worker but he gets the auditions coming because he parties with directors and producers. “Evelyn, you are not going to be able to believe what Ben just said!” By “Ben” she thinks that he means Ben Affleck. This made her a little bit frustrated. She just wanted to know if she got it or not, but she keeps calm and changes the subject. “Hey before that, did I get the part or not,” she pauses and waits for the news. He kind of giggled, really rudely, “You know you have a lot of nerve to think that you ever had a shot…” Evelyn’s stomach sinks, “Now what?”
He starts to talk again, “…at not getting the part!” Her heart stopped. This was it, this was her big break. She could pay rent. “What?!” she screamed into the phone. For lack of better words she yelled, “Oh my god!”

Packing her bags was a good relief. The butterflies were turning in her stomach.
She had met David Conners, the director, when she signed on the contract but it was the rest of the cast she was worried to meet. These were Oscar winning and nominated actors and actresses. There was Oscar buzz on the movie that hadn’t even three feet of film yet. This cast was a dream cast, Bradley Hales and Jennifer Cole. She would be meeting these superstars today. She tried had not to dwell on that. She looked at her watch just out of being nervous. Forty five minutes until the car from the airport picks her up. She went on Facebook but she sees that her wall is covered in congratulations. She looks through some of them but it is all the...

Poetry by Keats, Genius is Loving Your Mistakes

812 words - 3 pages away from something sweet." I kept hearing the Joker say, "Why so serious?" That question inspired my dash-of-serious, otherwise looney nonsense poems.
