Naomi slapped the cash register, which wheezed. "Turn on the 'Closed' sign. We've suffered Till Death."
"Do part with that phone, Kendra? I know it's your buddy, but I need to call Laird."
"That register's new!"
"Even shiny things shuffle off this mortal coil. C'mon."
Kendra passed the phone.
Kendra's sneakers tramped a tattoo of annoyance.
The phone clicked. "Hello! Lair--"
"Asthma again? Did you try the epi-kit?"
He sighed. "Adrenaline. The heart might reboot."
Naomi stared at the till. "Lord, I miss cogs and wheels."
The phone snickered and smooched her.
Congratualtions to Jjdebenedictis (5:41pm), our winner. Send me your mailing address and I'll be glad to send you the 10CD unabridged audio editon of EVEN. Your entry rocked!
