Chapter 261: Shave and a Haircut

In Uncategorized on September 18, 2011 at 2:24 am

My little savior knocks seven times.

There is silence, punctuated only by the high fast breathing of an over-exerted child.

I can’t stand it. I speak out.

“Hello?”

From the other side of the door, I hear my own voice, circa age 8: “Who’s in there?”

“My name is Margery Jones. I think…are we related?”

“Only kinda.”

“Are you okay? I heard gunshots.”

“Yeah. That was my AK.”

“You have an AK-47?”

“I have lots of toys,” she cheers. “But this one is definitely the best.”

She says nothing for a while. Then: “Do you want to come out of there?”
