As she picked up the phone, her eyes lit up. This was the moment she was waiting for; her hometown college’s distinct number popped up on the caller ID. Her heart started racing and her hands started sweating.

“This is the moment,” she said.

She pressed the accept button and squeaked out a faint greeting. She tried to listen closely but she couldn’t hear the person on the other line. Her hands started shaking and her head started spinning.

The person on the other line, in a mechanical voice said, “We regret to inform you…”

She dropped the phone and collapsed to the floor. She was so nervous they were going to say yes.
