Drabble: Nobody


“Did you hear?” Susie had asked me in the greenroom. “Tad Rackman’s on the set today.”

I’d known there was a chance, but I had never expected it so soon. I don’t know how I did it, but I kept it together, acted the best I’d ever acted. I glanced at the caterers setting up – was that really Tad?

I waited in my dressing room afterwards, imaged Tad walking in. “I couldn’t help but see your acting,” he’d say. “Could you come wait tables at my restaurant?”

There was no knock. I felt stupid, dreaming of being discovered so easily.
