"Now boarding for flight 473 to Guam," Cynthia heard over the PA system. She hoped that Lena got to her flight on time. She'd taken too long getting ready and by the time they got to the airport she should have went straight to the security check out. But instead she wanted to have a cup of coffee before she went. So Cynthia had obliged her and had sat down and drank some espresso. Why having a drink in LAX sounded fun or relaxing to Lena, she'd never understand. As Cynthia stood to leave finally, having not gulped down her coffee like her friend, she noticed a bag under the table next to her purse. She couldn't believe it, Lena had forgotten to grab her carry-on. Well it was too late now. Even if security wasn't so tight, she'd never make it to the terminal before the final boarding for the flight. There was no helping it. Grabbing the bag, Cynthia sighed and started heading to the parking garage. It was too early in the day for all of this.
