Listless (75)

The evening sun was sinking quickly, Anna paced quickly back and forth. The waiting was torture; he did not deserve to be here. She should have been on that plane. Richard took her place, and now she waited for news that she was not sure she could take.

She grew listless flipping through the magazines. The doctor finally came out and the look on his face made her certain that the news was not good.

Did the plane crash? Why did Richard take her place? Is the news as bad as she thinks it is?
