Neglected and Replaced

Leena: Hey you

Me: who me

Leena: yes you, who else would I be talking to?

Me: what do you want, I'm kind of busy right now.

Leena: yeah I can see that, busy writing someone elses story, but did you forget about me?

Me: I haven't forgotten about you, I just got bored of writing about you, you have been my main focus for the last 4 years, it's time to let someone else have the limelight.

Leena: but that's not fair, you just abandoned us in the middle of a major war.  You can't do that.

Me: actually I can and I sort of did.  I'm the author in case you've forgotten.

Leena: (turns to my newest characters) hear that you guys, how easily she just abandoned us and in the middle of such a critical scene too.  (back to me) I thought we were friends and after four years you just drop us like a ton of bricks.

Me:  Hey it was starting to really stress me out, I wasn't sure how to rescue you guys.

Leena: and you think we did?

Jordan:  I don't want to be abandoned.  I don't want any part of this story.

Me:  Wait where are you going?  Jordan, come back..... Ok, Janelle it looks like you're the main character now.

Janelle:  What me?  You don't want me, I don't have any depth, I'm just a minor character.

Me: *sigh* ok lets put this one on the shelf and come back to it later...maybe Holly's ready for her adventure.

Leena:  (to Jordan) see I told you she would abandon you.

Jordan:  We showed her.  Thanks for rescueing me before she put me through all that junk I could have gotten stuck in the middle of a really nasty breakup or something.

Leena:  No characters need to stick together, now lets go see if we can get Holly to join us before she gets abandoned too.

The End
