Rosy Red Petals
Briana opens her eyes as she hears her alarm clock ringing in her ears. She then jumps right out of the bed before it flips her over. It is 6:30 A.M. and she needs to get out of the house by quarter till 8 at the latest. She is dragging herself into her shower booth, luckily the bathroom is already steamed up for her. She takes a quick twenty-minute shower and runs downstairs in her robe to start her kitchen to make her breakfast and lunch. She stares at her kitchen robots working. Briana misses her Monday-no-pack-day, a day filled with Courtney’s nutritious but tasty snacks.

The roses are red and its petals has been dried up with wrinkles. Briana looks around to see if there is a note about the sender but all it says is “To Briana.” She carefully carries the glass box inside her house and gets in her car to drive to work. She barely makes it on time to her meeting but she cannot stop thinking about the roses, the velvety sweet smell from them. After the meeting, Briana walks up to the front desk to find Courtney, who works at front desk.
“Hey there, you have a nice weekend?” Courtney asks.

You don’t know what might have end up in those petals as they were dried up,” Mike says worriedly as he sees the blank face on Briana’s face. He stays calm though.
