Just because some things are so much fun to play with, I have an epilogue for the story completed yesterday. Without further ado ...

He sat at the small kitchen table, nursing the last beer from the fridge.
He heard the rattle of her keys in the hall, and then the lock.
She walked in the door, a small bag of groceries in her arms.
"Oh, you're home. How'd it go?"
"Okay, I guess. What's in the bag?"
"Okay? What's OKAY?"
"A surprise. I got a job."
"A job? YOU. GOT. A. JOB??"
"Yes. I start Monday morning."
"Well ... I have a surprise, too."
"Yeah? What?"
She slowly crossed the room and pulled down the Murphy bed, turned around and said, "Me on top."

Now. Now I think the sory is finally complete. Because I love happy endings. And this is a MUCH happier ending than the mildly happy ending we originally had.

witchypoo: *Channelling Fonzie* HEEEEY.

Alice: Do I have to worry about my reputation out here?

tiff: Well, I hope you LIKED it.

Christy said...

Oh, man.....this is the reason all men work....to get sex.

(And women, I guess....)

Btw, Murphy beds are so sexy, so "Streetcar named desire..."

Elizabeth said...

And here I thought she was going to say she was preggers! LOL Great ending!

Allison said...

You ended it wrong. You should have had her lead him across the room, and push him down. Seriously, that last comment from her would have made more sense. I just can't see saying that without first leading the....uh....cowboy across the room and pushing him down first.

Just an editorial comment. From a fellow writer :-)

maggie's mind said...

Hahahaha, OK, yes, now it's perfectly ended. :)

LceeL said...

Christy: Nah, we just work because we like it.

Elizabeth: She says she's preggers two sections later. Of course, they haven't been written. Yet. Maybe never. I don't know If I'm going to go further with this story.

Allison: G-rated, Allison. G-rated. NOT 'R'.

redchair said...

Very sweet story, Lou. Excellent work. (I hope you're keeping a CD or printed journal of these?)

OHmommy said...

Oh Lou.... you have to start your post with a rating for me. LOL.

That happy ending is surely a Lou ending. Got to love one of those. ;)

Christy said...

Hey, Lou, you should have an R-rated blog, too....

I think this have been posted on a Wednesday...'Hump Day', Hehe.


Hyphen Mama said...

Awe, I thought for SURE her surprise was an EPT test.

Did he have to pay extra for the *happy ending*?

LceeL said...

maggie's mind: Thank you. I think so too.

redchair: Yes, I am starting to document all of my work.

OHmommy: Thank you. A "Lou ending"? Methinks my reputation doth proceed me.

christy: Cool idea. I'll give that some thought. One of those 'invitation only' blogs.

employee no. 3699: LOL. Yes, from now on, I'll save the 'Climax' for 'hump day'.

hyphen mama: Of course. Don't we all? Men, that is.

Allison said...

I'm just saying. It doesn't seem right that way.

And you're the one always looking further into MY stuff than what I put out there. I toe the line, I toe the line...just trying to get the same here! You were too far away, LOL!

Tara R. said...

That one really made me laugh... great ending.

Sandy C. said...

LOL! Oh so very you Lou ;)
