Out of Place, Out of Time

The door opened, and she turned expectantly. A smartly dressed man hovered there, his forehead creased in confusion.

“May I help you?”

“I am here for the interview.”

“What interview?”

She looked around, realizing this wasn’t the right building. She was most definitely late.
