Hey :] I hope your hip is doing better, not hurting as
much as earlier. I worked until 10 tonight, grabbed
a quick bite and now I’m in bed reading. How’s your
night going? It’s the usual here – the house is dead
silent now. The doorbell was acting up earlier, so I
yelled at it to stop. It’s hasn’t chimed since. :] The
door to the green room kept shutting too, the cats
were growling at it, but they seem to have settled
down, so has the door… it always stops when the
front door –the one that doesn’t lock anymore –
when I hear it unlock, the knob turn, the door gently
shut, and the lock reengage. I know you don’t believe
me, but none of the other doors open with a skeleton
key, the sound is distinct. Anyway, the smell of smoke is
dissipating… the cigarette smoke, not the pipe tobacco.
The cherry scent is still hanging in the air, probably will
be until you get home. Sorry, I know I’m rambling, but
you know how I hate having to text you goodnight. No
blame –I know you didn’t pick the nightshift, but still…
Anyway, I guess I should say goodnight since that‘s why
I texted. Try to have a good one and I’ll see you in the
morn if I haven’t left by the time you get in. Night hun!
Love ya boo-boo-bear!! :]
Ahhh… I think you may have the wrong number…
Oh, I’m so sorry! I hope I didn’t wake you!
No, you didn’t wake me – I’m a night owl. I
know I’m not ‘boo-boo bear’,
but your message was a little odd.
Do you need help?
Help? No, well yes, but not the kind you mean anyway.
I’m so sorry to have disturbed you. I’m Trish, btw.
I’m no more disturbed now than before
your text. Get it, it’s a joke?
I got it – clever.
Is ‘boo-boo bear’ your boyfriend?
Yeah, we’ve been together for a few years now.
He works at the Budweiser plant near the airport.
Oh, so you work days, he wrks nights?
NTMY Todd. Something like that. Since we’re
talking, what are you doing up so late?
Watching a marathon on the Horror
network. They’re ramping up for the
latest FD film that’s coming out –lots
of slasher flicks on tonight.
No way! I love those movies. Which one are
you watching? No – wait, hang on… Sweet!
I love the scene where his
head gets sliced apart by the falling glass!
lol – you’re into horror/slasher flims?
Yeah, love ‘em.
So that stuff you were saying about your house,
is that some kind of joke?
Hmmm, joke? No, it really happens.
The place is haunted out the ass.
Oh, gosh – I’m sorry, are you like,
born again or something?
lmfao – no, it’s not that – swear all you
want – it’s just kinda odd to get a
wrong text at three in the morning from a girl
living in a haunted house while
you’re watching horror movies,
don’t ya think? – lots of coincidence
Mmmm, maybe. I don’t believe
Okayyyyy… What do you call it then?
If shit is meant to happen, it does. Oh damn!
The elevator scene! Yesssss!
*squeals in delight*
TFF – weirdest ‘non-coincidence’ I’ve ever
had. Your number didn’t come up
on my phone – do you live near the airport?
Nope, about an hour north.
Me too! Where abouts?
I’m in Bergen.
So am I… maybe we can catch the premier
Oh, dang! The pipe scene where it juts through his
head. Don’t you love it when they take the time
to trickle blood out the end. Sick!
Uhm, yeah – I do. And the gore stuck to the
front of the pipe is a nice touch. lol
So true – only armatures miss that part! Great film,
I’m kinda glad I miss ‘texted’ you. ;]
Yeah, me too. You never said what town
Yeah, where are you mis-texting me from? lol
I’m in Emerson :]
No friggin way… me too! How f’d up is that?
Right, completely wacked!
No, I mean I know you’re in Emerson.
How do you know that? lol –
did the house tell you?
*giggling* No, silly… turn around and look out
Oh, shit! You scared the crap out of me!
Come on, open the window before I fall off the
roof… and what is this crap about you taking
another girl to the premier?
Brian… Brian! I swear, if you don’t
open this window!
Whaaaa? I mean, WTF?
Boo-boo-bear, who is he?
OMG -YGTBFKM – you know there is no boo-boo-bear!
It was a joke! You don’t believe me? UFR!
Maybe you better call boo-boo-bear before
you fall – those tiles are slick.
I know, I climbed up! *huff* …Brian! Brian!
Brian! Brian? Brian…

Awesome. You set up something very specific, and then did not do that. Satisfying.

Hi Jesse – thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed it! This was my first lighthearted piece this challenge, and I needed to blow off a little steam. 🙂

Thank you, Kevin!! I think this is my ‘Pink Unicorn’ this year! lol 😉

oh god – that was bloody marvelous!! I didn’t see it coming — and neither did she
Years ago a guy friend of mine got a wrong number from a woman and they dated for quite a while. Stranger things do happen
April 13th, 2014 at 4:04 pm
Thanks, Sue!! I had fun writing it… I needed to break the tension of the heavier pieces. Glad you enjoyed it! … and stranger things do happen. 😉
April 11th, 2014 at 7:15 pm
You did it again…pulled me right into the whole thing…enjoyed it.
April 13th, 2014 at 4:05 pm
I didn’t think this one would be up your alley – I’m really happy you enjoyed it! 🙂
April 11th, 2014 at 11:14 pm
guess you have to watch what you do with endearments. Very well done Nina. Not sure who the joke is on – I guess Boo Boo
April 13th, 2014 at 4:07 pm
Always place your endearments with care, Leslie! Thank you for the kudos, they are gratefully appreciated! And as to Boo-Boo-Bear… well, we can assume he’s been left out in the cold, as well! lol 🙂
April 12th, 2014 at 12:07 am
Love love love love love this!! So different and refreshing!! You’re damn spoiling me with your A-Z challenge 🙂
April 13th, 2014 at 4:09 pm
lmao!! Thank you for your enthusiasm, Joe!! I’m glad you liked my first trek into the ‘other’ this challenge. It was crickets around here for a bit! :}
April 12th, 2014 at 2:03 am
OK, that was a nice chunk of creepy! Great sense of growing unease there. I’m in the A to Z also.

This was a fun one… I laughed the entire time I wrote the part about him leaving her on the roof – I only grinned through the rest. Thanks, Julie! ;]
