“What do you want? Can’t you see that I’m trying to leave for my date?” This was an important date, too. One that I had actually wanted to go on. After all the suitors passed by the queen, we had agreed.
“Miss Emily, I am so sorry, but you forgot one very important thing!” I sighed noisely as she prattled on.
“Bronwyn, you are dismissed. Go do whatever it is that you do after hours.” I turned on my heel and stalked away. Whatever it was could wait. My date wouldn’t.
