started w/ the idea is that it was pretty ironic that Arin, the man with two cats, who got nicknamed big cat and is married to someone who has a channel called Kitty Kat gaming, has said he doesnt rlly like cats (only his cats)
can we get a reaction from Alicia and Bob? imagine how proud are they
okay not that this matters to anyone but me, but this is the first thing I’ve written on my brand new stealth computer.
When Alicia’s phone rings and shows Jack’s
name, she’s expecting just a standard Sunday morning phone call. Her son has
usually been good about that, except when he’s got a game later that day. Jack
does not call his mother, or either of his parents, on game days. Jack claims
it’s because they’re both busy people and aren’t always available by phone and
what if he calls them before a game one time and then wins because then he’d
somehow have to talk to them every
time he’s got a game and if they’re in St Bart’s when he’s trying to call and
they’re swimming and he can’t get a hold of them then – and at that point in
the rambling explanation, Alicia usually cuts him off.
So she has no reason to suspect anything is
afoot when Jack calls.
“Hey honey!” Alicia says, automatically
putting the phone on speaker so she can keep typing. Her agent’s been driving
her crazy with deadlines ever since Alicia turned down the idea of a ghost
writer for her memoir. “You know I majored in English,” she had asked, and her
agent had looked awkward, and then given her a deadline.
“Hi,” Jack says, and Alicia can hear the
soft smile on his face. Something about Eric then, that dear, sweet boy.
“What’s up?” Alicia asks.
“I have some sort of big news,” Jack says,
still with the smile on his face, and Alicia stops staring at her screen and
starts staring at her phone instead. Soft voice. Talking about Bitty. Big news.
wade stuck around for manicure night with nat. it shouldnt surprise anyone that the merc with a mouth is excellent for commentary on b-level horror movies, which nat loves. im not always big on talking so its kinda nice to have someone else fill the silence. and red is also his color. he might actually get a return invite.
