Chris took a sip of her tea as she read her latest e-mail. She nearly snorted the tea out her nose. She could see Mark doing just that. Setting her cup down her hands hovered over the keyboard. This was idiotic. They were right next door. It wasn’t a far walk and would make much more sense. Chris grinned as a plan formed in her mind. Leaving a quick note on the kitchen table for her mother, she bundled up and went outside.
Mark bundled himself up and left the house. He wasn’t sure if he wanted to go take a walk by himself, or see if Chris would join him. The figure walking towards their house made his choice for him. They met at the edge of the property line. He looked into her face. “I had no idea how you felt.” It was lame, but it was the only thing he could think of. “So?” she asked. “Feelings can change.” She continued on. Mark trailed after her. “Change to what?” Chris looked back and flashed him a mischievous grin. “We’ll just have to find out won’t we.”
Anna heard pounding from the front door. Great Sun and Mark had probably crossed paths. “AngleOfDeath, come out and face your Doom!” she heard a female voice call from outside. “I and my characters and your character demand retribution for all the torment you have put us through!” Anna stood from her computer slowly. The message was repeated along with the pounding. If it wasn’t for the torment, their stories would have sucked. She thought Sun had known that. Cautiously Anna went to the front door and opened it.
