250. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Tuesday, May 8th, 6:00pm
Red (and Phil)


Red sits at the window. Phil takes the seat beside her: he is out of breath.

Red: Are you okay?

Phil: Yeah. I almost missed the damned bus. (does a double take) … I mean, the darned bus.

Red: I wish I had. I’m really starting to hate taking the bus. I used to have a car to go to my grandma’s house. But since it broke down, I’m having to deliver the goodies (holds up basket) by bus and by foot. Yesterday I almost got eaten!

Phil: (stares) You hate the bus too … Wait, did you say eaten?

Red: Yeah. A guy came out of the bushes and tried to bite my neck. He was wearing all this glittery stuff. Kept calling me Bell-something. I might not even be here if some crazy brunette hadn’t shown up and chased him away with a pointy stick.

Phil: That doesn’t sound very safe. What do you say to getting off the bus with me? I’m just going to get my car from the shop. I can drive you to your grandma’s house.

Red: (sighs in relief and grins widely) Oh, could you?

Phil: I’d drive you there every night …

Red takes his hand. They get off the bus together.


Next stop: Wednesday, May 9th, 5:00pm

I was ecstatic when I got an e-mail from Transmundane Press to say my story had been accepted for the anthology, but nothing–and I mean NOTHING–could have prepared me for the moment I opened a real book and found my name in the Table of Contents. I rushed around the house to show my kids and when I ran out of those, it was all I could do not to tear out of the house and scream at the passing cars, “THAT’S ME!!” while pointing at the book.

Fast forward a few months to Transmundane’s next release, ON FIRE. My story, “The Flame of Lick’s Island” is in there. I was slightly more calm, more organized, when I received it. I resisted…
