Begin

Breath in.  Breath out.  She mounted the stairs.  Hollow footsteps across the stage eroded her confidence.  The air thickened as she approached the center.

Then she was there.  Sweat sizzled off her skin.  Her gut was a kettle.  The pressure was building.  Weighted silence settled.

Breath in.  Breath out.

Begin.
