The prompt line is:
"Excuse me. I have a scene to make."
It'll be teal in the narrative, and this is in an upcoming tale, ANGEL INK. ;) Happy reading!
“Excuse me. I have to go make a scene.” I grinned at their gobsmacked expressions. “That’s exactly what she said and then she proceeded to take down the Mayor and the Assistant District Attorney of Denver.”
“Holy shit.” Eric gaped, shaking his head. “Are you serious? You know that’s gonna make her a target, right?”
I nodded. “It would, except the woman at the party with the universal remote wore a spectacular golden dress and was blond. She walked around the room and clicked on all the TVs to the various news stations. She has friends at CNN, MSN, CNBC, BBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, and far more acronyms than I can remember.” I shot a look toward the current dark big screen against the wall. “Each one had their headline story about the mysterious group infiltrating law enforcement and how the Mayor and the ADA were part of it. It was brilliant.”
Eric sat back in his chair and wrapped his arm around Karma’s waist. “Holy shit, she exposed them.” Then he frowned. “What about her?”
I smiled. “By the time the story ran, no one paid any attention to the woman in the gold dress. She was a distraction and she slipped away before all hell broke loose. She walked right out the front doors and out of camera range before she disappeared forever.” I nodded to Gadget. “Thanks for the prosthetics. Totally changed her face.”
Gadget nodded and raised her glass of port. “Anything for a good cause.” The Basque woman winked and sipped.
“Where is Haley now?” Dollhouse swiped a corn chip out from under Friar’s watchful eyes.
“Oy!” He grabbed his plate and moved it out of her reach.
“You snooze, you lose, Friar.” She winked.
I laughed. “Haley’s out celebrating with her best friend and her cousin. They should be along soonly.”
“Soonly?” Gopher blinked owlishly. “Who the hell says ‘soonly’?”
I shrugged and lifted my pint. I’d learned the phrase from the woman who held my heart. Now I just had to convince her to move in with me and we’d be set.
Come home soonly, Haley. I need you here.
That's it for me this month. Check out the other authors who wrote something to the prompt.
