Deadlines

I pace anxiously around the room, glancing at my watch. Time was running out. They'd promised to come in less than fifteen minutes. There were only two minutes left. Suddenly I hear the doorbell ring. I edge cautiously closer, my stomach a churning mass of nerves. I lean forward to look through the peep hole. Oh god, oh god, what if it's her? What if she's here already? I don't have any back up plans! I'm screwed!

I see a friendly face, and swing open the door, breathing a sigh of relief. Once again the take-away has arrived before Susan.

This started as my 3rd twabble idea for today, but I couldn't fit it all into 100 characters so I decided to go for broke and expand it up to 100 words :) Unfortunately I now need to come up with another twabble idea to stick to my challenge...
