Quill As My Witness
Step into a scene and let it drip from your fingertips. -MJ Bush
You are Pen & Ink’s most talented journalist, focusing mainly on the ask column that gets people results. Everyone who asked ‘Miss Shrouded In Answers’ a question, about ninety-eight percent of clients wrote back with good news on either a test, that pet they wanted or, the most popular type of questions, relationships.
It was surprising. You have never been on a date, never been the one to ‘fall in love at first sight.’ You thought it was nothing but fairy tales about finding your one true love with only a glance at the other person.
You almost laughed aloud. Love blinded people, disrupting their common sense and made them act irrational. You promised yourself years ago, at the age of ten, that love will not get in the way of your goal: Owning your own journalism business, hiring people of all races, sexual orientation, and family classes to make a magazine that is real. For the people, by the people, right?
You were fine working at Pen & Ink as an anonymous writer. The pay was amazing, especially for a female in this line of work, and you made incredible friends.
But you wanted something bigger.
