Charlie huffed blowing a strand of hair from her face and slouched with an elbow on the counter. The stool pinched her butt randomly where it was cracked when she shifted in a certain as yet undefined way. The kiosk was smelled heavily of pretzels which she initially found pleasant but now haunted her dreams. It was cramped with the appliances to produce and bake them, giving her barely enough room to squeeze around them under ideal conditions.
It was the end of week two of her summer internment at the ‘Pretzelmaniacal’ booth at the local mall. Week one consisted of her brief training and was the longest period of time she had seen her boss. On the second week she was turned loose to run the little food kiosk on her own, only seeing Elise at the end of the afternoon when the owner/manager took over.

Calvin tapped his foot against the concrete curb outside the school, clicking his teeth together as he let out an annoyed groan. Everyone else from his class had already been picked up and here he was, still waiting for a ride.

Molly nodded and took another big sip of water. Alina scratched the side of her head and looked to the rest of the crew backstage. The talent show was moving along well enough but it still required everyone to be busy and move as quickly as they could. "Y-you're sure I couldn't bring my friends backstage with me? That would help m-my nerves a lot."
"Sorry, stage policy," Alina said, eyes on her tablet, scrolling through checklists. "Besides, with you back here, there's barely enough room to get around as it is." She turned to Molly and gave a small smile. "No offense."
"You're not wrong," Molly sighed, looking down at herself. Other stage hands and performers were brushing up against her belly, not just out of a desire to touch the most fecund round middle on the continent, but because of the lack of space and the hectic nature of the performance.
Alina touched an hand to her headset and grumbled under her breath. "Look, I've got to go, but chin up, yeah? You
