The Writer Makes a Mistake

The morning is cold, as always. I’m currently trying not to spill coffee on the journal, and keep Scooter from knocking over my mug.

I had enough trouble last night as it is; I nearly lost my cool when he, I mean, Raine, turned around and handled me like a Marine would handle a terrorist—not only that, he actually was looking at the pictures!

That was for a reason I don’t know yet…but, I’m determined to find out.

A clatter from my mug made me look up, only to behold Scooter pawing my coffee cup. I push him away, and take a comforting sip of caffeine.

“I told you my name,” a voice said, making me hunch my shoulders in surprise.

“You did? I’m sorry, I didn’t catch it,” I remarked sarcastically, not afraid to let my face become a grimace. “What do you want?”

“Well, considering the fact that you towed me back from the desert, I think I should have the pleasure of knowing your name,” Raine said.

“If you cough up your real ID, then I’ll have no trouble with it.”

Did it just get colder?




  • from Mistress Elsha Hawk:

    smart move, writer!

  • from OrangeOreos:

    Very smart move!

    a comforting sip of caffeine. Describes coffee perfectly for most people!

    Myself, I can’t stand the stuff! Why drink dirty water….?

  • from g2 (la pianista irlandesa):

    I love the coffee smell, canNOT stand the taste. I don’t understand it, really.

  • from Freedom:

    I’m the same way, g2.

  • from RainDance:

    Funny how she was thinking about his name and he comes over and says he told her his name already. Entertainingly witty and spooky.
