“I’m okay, Mom!” she called back, feeling her voice catch.

“Looks like a blackout,” her mother said as she stepped into her room. “You sure you’re okay?”

“Yes,” Michelle said, sighing as she looked at her computer.

“Hope you make it,” she said, touching her screen, knowing it would do nothing to help the friends she had made.
