Sometimes, it seems like the minutiae of the days just suck the life out of a person, she thought. Life was filled with a series of remembering usernames and passwords, keeping up with email, and filing hard copy and electronic documents. Once in a while, someone would call but it was rare to break the soulless monotony. She considered the alternatives to her career: retirement or a sabbatical but none of them could sustain her. She turned the page of the latest report she was finishing when the telephone rang. The jarring ring was exciting. She picked up the call immediately.
“Hethlo,” the voice rasped, “I’mnth waithing.”
Time stood still. She was petrified and silent. For the first time in weeks, something new was finally happening.
“Hello?” she said, “Who is this?”
“I’mth waithing fhur yhou…” Then silence.
She checked the caller identification. “A. Rachnid” came up as the caller.
There are worse ways to get the life sucked out of me—oh, what the heck, she thought.
“I’ll be right there,” she said, and headed out to the door to Bug Nights St. Paul’s School.
