BRINNNNNGGG!!! The phone on Lila's bedside table rang. Lila barely was able to get a hold of it as she leaned on her side to get it. She looked at the name across the screen and all the blood drained from her face.
"Vivian Rose Locke"
Lila swallowed before swiping her thumb across the glass to answer the call. The room was silent as Lila put the phone up to her ear. Suddenly from the other side of the line,
"DARLING! How come you never call?" Vivian's English accent was thick and heavy over the phone. Lila pulled the phone away from her ear at the abrupt volume of her former employer's voice. 'I have to find out from little Marcus that you had an accident and are injured? Why didn't you call darling?! I have to be honest I thought we were closer than that! But ah, alas... we'll be closer soon, at least geographically." Usually Lila let Vivian drag on and on, but the last sentence caught her attention.
"What do you mean geographically?" Lila asked attempting to retain a stronger tone to her voice.
"Oh, darling this is what you get for not calling! I'm visiting. I'll be there tomorrow at 12:00 pm sharp! Perfect timing for lunch together. I hope you're all settled in because I'm bunking with you!"
"Whoa- wait- not so fast-"
"Oh, darling I've got to go, but this was a good chat. Ta-ta!" And with that the line went dead and Lila was shocked still.
Vivian. Was. Going. To. Be. Here. Tomorrow.
Lila sighed as she collapsed on her pile of pillows.
"I just kinda wish you were gay." she said to her ceiling.
Just found Billie Eilish....
