Anna pulls into her driveway, exhausted and inspired to write. In case, you didn’t already know Anna is a political reporter for AP. She covers the ins and outs during congressional meetings and focuses primarily on legislation for women.
She turns her car off, pulls the key out of the ignition, throws them in her bag and just sits back and exhales. The wind whistles against the door of her car, the tree branches sway and bang against her condos windows. She opens her door and the wind catches her by surprise thrashing her hair into her face and mouth. “UGHHHH”, Anna yells. She looks up to the sky and can see the clouds beginning to hover in together.
Anna quickly runs to the door because she can feel a storm brewing. She takes her keys out, unlocks the door and swiftly enters her humble abode. As she enters a very potent smell of roses and lilies forces its way up her nostrils. She is confused.
“I dont remember going to the market and buying flowers?”
This was one of Anna’s busiest weeks ever! She was finally put in charge of a large feature story that would be on the FRONT PAGE! She hasn’t even had time to run to the supermarket, put gas in car or do laundry. Her house is a mess, well was a mess but now it’s miraculously CLEAN! As she walks into her living room, Jasper approaches her and rubs against her legs purring veraciously. She bends down and starts petting him under his chin while baby talking him.
“That’s my cute little baby, Mama missed you so much. Were you bored today without her?” Just as she is about to get up she is tapped on the shoulder. As she turns around to her surprise, there is no one there. Okay, now Anna is a bit creeped out. She yells out, “Hello, is someone there?” She goes up her stairs and starts turning on all the lights in her place to see if there is an intruder. But she finds no one. She shrugs her shoulders and doesn’t let it her ruin her inspiration.
She washes up, changes into her sweats, feeds Jasper and gets a glass of juice. She places her laptop on her desk and presses the power button to boot it up while she figures out what to eat for dinner. Unsure of what she wants to eat, Anna begins to snack on some nuts. She is so excited because she hasn’t had this kind of inspiration to write for her book in so long. But before she can begin, she remembers the flowers on the counter.
She cant believe that she somehow had forgotten and not been more curious as to who the sender was. She quickly runs downstairs and looks at the flowers examining them as if they were under a microscope. There is no card and she doesn’t understand how they got into her house because no one has a pair of her keys. She’s so confused. She scratches her head thinking and pondering over how this gorgeous bouquet made it inside.
Just then her doorbell rings…
Could this be my turn around?
Anna’s excited yet nervous to find out who is at the door. She looks through her peep hole and just sees a delivery guy holding a medium sized package. She unlatches the lock on her door and opens it. ”Are you Anna Green?”, he asks.
“Yes”, she replies. “Can you sign here ma’am?” She slowly signs for the package while trying to remember if she had ordered anything this week that she was expecting. But again, nothing comes to mind. “Thank you ma’am, you have a good one now!”, he exclaimed. “You too”, she said. She looks at the package puzzled because it does not have a sender on the label and takes it inside.
What is going on?! Who is sending me these gifts? I mean they are pretty sweet and amazing but who is doing this?
Anna is ecstatic, flattered but now eager to find out who is sending her these gifts when the doorbell rings again….
Who is this now?!
