Hey, remember when I had that game? You know the one where you guys give me five words and I attempt to write a story using them? I'm sorry it's been so long since there's been an installment of The Assistant. (Of course, maybe you don't even care, heh.) My work has been sucking up all my creative power, but I miss Kitty and Geoff and Cal, even that crazy Madame Beaumont. Let's give them another chapter, shall we?
The Rules: Give me a word—any PG word—and I will incorporate it into a short fiction piece, which will be posted at some point. Only one word per person, and I will take the first five words offered. The story must continue where it left off.
Be nice-ish, pretty please? *gulp*
