Hello, Dad?

She was unsure what to do.  She sat at the kitchen table, in front of her was $38.25; all she had to her name.  Her bills had piled up and the landlord told her if her arrears rent wasn’t taken care of, she was out.  Payday was still days away and her refrigerator was almost empty.

She did have a bus pass for the rest of the month so she could still make it to work.  She had no choice; she had to call him and ask for help.  She dialed the familiar number and waited for him to answer.
