 “You really think you’re too good for anyone, don’t you?” Sara’s voice shook. “That you’re some kind of celebrity because National Geographic made you their cover boy? Well let me tell you something, Jack. I don’t need a world seal of approval to help me sleep at night. I don’t need looks or money to buy me a circle of friends, and I don’t need some beach bum telling me what I am.”

Looking embarrassed, Jack dropped her hands. In a low voice, he said, “If that’s who you think I am than you can leave.”

“Thank you,” Sara shouted, “I will!” She flung the door open on the way. The planner was still in the middle of the hallway, a few pages hanging out of it. She gave it a vicious kick, and it smacked into the wall. “That’s what I think about you and your stupid foundation,” she shouted over her shoulder. She kicked it again and again until pages scattered everywhere.

He was still watching from his office door, looking like he wanted to shove a sock in her mouth. All around the office, people sidled into range to see more. Satisfied she’d humiliated him, she took the stairs to the ground floor. She wanted to be exhausted when she walked out of the place. She wanted to feel so tired, she would never have the energy to come back.
